Upcycle Spray Paint Idea

Spray Painted Pottery | DIY | Craft | Spray Paint | Turquoise | Zinnias | CreativeCainCabin.comMust be I’m in a crafty mood lately, I made pillowcases this week, and updated a ginger jar pottery piece with spray paint. I found the most beautiful color called Blue Ocean Breeze by Krylon and knew it would be perfect for making my 80’s pottery current again.

I did love it for many years, and still like the shape but the color and scene on it had to go, so spray paint to the rescue. I did several light coats, outside, until I got the desired coverage. I think the glossy finish is the trick to making it look original, not painted.

I always plant one raised bed of Cosmos and Zinnias just for cutting purposes. They’re so easy all I do is sew the seeds and let them bloom. Zinnias are my favorite they last forever after being cut.

Once it sells we will list the log home and then look hot and heavy for a new place. I’ve been searching the listings for either property or property with a fixer upper on it. I’ll let you know more when we know more. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

  1. When I first saw your ginger jar I thought you had painted the barn scene and I couldn’t wait to see how you did it. 🙂 Actually I love it before and after!

    1. Ha Ha Pam, I tricked you right. No I was tired of the scene and needed something brighter.

    1. Ya Kris, I have a flip flop fetish I guess. Old Navy $1 in every color, lol.

  2. I noticed the matching flip flops, too! Those pink zinnias are gorgeous with that pretty shade of blue. I will looking at pottery and vases in a whole new way, thanks to you!

    1. Jane I have a flip flop addiction. Every color from Old Navy!

  3. Love the transformation and how you took the crock from yesteryear to today!…love the color and good luck on the sale of your guest house so you can move on to searching for your “fixer upper”…..

    1. Shirley sometimes a good piece is salvageable with a little paint. May as well try before I send it off to the thrift store.

    I’m always amazed at what a difference a little paint can make….so pretty Dawn..and the zinnias too…

    1. I agree Nancy, paint is the wonder cure for everything.

    1. Georgia, its amazing what a little paint can do, right?

  5. May I suggest bachelor buttons and cleome to your mix of cutting flowers they both self seed and come back true to form. Nothing to me is more beautiful than observing a finch feeding from a dried bachelor button flower.

  6. Cleome full sun & well draining soil. If you have clay like Georgia there is a problem then I would add straw , compost & sand to amend soil . Bachelor buttons are gorgeous & grow where ever cosmos blossom .

    1. Gaeyl I can grow cosmos all day long but no success with cleome. The soil I have is good topsoil that was from our pond did. I guess I just don’t have a green thumb for that plant.
