A quick and easy way to refresh a Tin Flower Pot

I've got such an easy peasy project to share with you this week on Frugal Decor Tuesday.  It was so easy I'm almost embarrassed to share it but it's too purdy not to.  A quick and easy way to Refresh a Tin Flower Pot...

Tin flower pot refresh with chalk paint

This pretty but dated tin vase has been collecting dust in the corner of the workshop for almost a year. The original retailer's price tag read $24.99 and I think we paid $2.00. I loved the pretty feet and fluted top but wasn't a fan of the patina.

All I did was brush a couple of coats of Simplicity White chalk paint all over it and once dry, lightly distressed it with a piece of 220 sandpaper.  The outside was protected with clear wax applied with a clean lint-free rag.

I didn't distress the inside but protected it with two coats of Rust-oleum Ultra Cover Matte Clear spray.

I slipped a dollar store glass cylinder inside and loaded it with some Spring flowers that were on clearance and ta da!

A pretty Spring vignette was created in my dining room.

Is it a vase?

Is it a flower pot?

I say tomato,

you say tomatoe.

Whatever it is, next time you see one on the thrift store shelves, think twice about walking past it!

Have a great week and we'll see you next time on Frugal Decor Tuesday
