Okay yes, I’m obsessed with copper spray paint. It’s still very cold out here so I’ve had to get creative with how to do a project outside but I’ve managed to get the job done. I’ll say it again this paint is brilliant it has a shine just like real metal, covers most of the time in one coat, and dry time is faster than any spray paint I’ve ever used. Well-done Rust-Oleum! Oh and did I mention I’ve made several projects from just one can?
I found the tube pan at a local thrift shop for 50¢ and had planned on making a beauty ring for my camera. Well that never happened and it was collecting dust in my craft stash so I decided to give it a new purpose by turning it into a copper succulent planter.
With winter lingering on I needed a fresh look on the coffee table so I created a vignette with my new planter, (if you missed it click here). I don’t know if it works this way for you, but for me a simple change like adding flowers or plants give the place life again and seems to keep me aware that spring will be here soon.
What I did:
- Spray-painted the tube pan in copper paint
- Added fish tank pebbles to the pan
- Used faux succulent plants pushed down into the pebbles
It couldn’t be easier and I think my
green brown thumb can handle it. I can grow things outside but I can kill an indoor plant faster than anyone I know. I think I’m an overwater-er but not certain on that so I just leave my gardening skills to the great outdoors and stick with the faux version for inside.
