FRESH LOOK: White & Gold Painted Pot

White and Gold Painted Pot Makeover via homework | carolynshomework.comWhen you have a creative and craft blog, people give you all kinds of goodies because “you can do something with this”. I recently received a bunch of pots and they all have tons of potential.

It was actually fine in it’s original state but I’ve been so into gold accents lately, I thought I’d play up the honeycomb with some gold paint. I used gold craft paint and a small paint brush and the results were so-so. It just didn’t feel finished to me.

  8. Hi Carlolyn :) Since Facebook is notorious for not letting page owners know when I tag them, I thought I would stop by myself and let you know I featured this post and my readers loved it! https://www.facebook.com/CraftsbyAmanda/photos/pb.323548680216.-2207520000.1397173025./10153988867420217/?type=3&theater
