To paint or not to paint, part 2 {Blogtoberfest day 6}

Bad blogger, bad blogger, I'm so naughty I didn't post yesterday :( I have a good excuse though, I was absolutely buggered after working a full day (well doing placement for my child care course).So I apologise for my lack of post, promise I do!

Now, do you remember this post? Well I have FINALLY made the decision and went ahead and painted the sucker! It only took me 2 months (exactly)!

So what do you think? It's pretty cute (and not a chevron in sight ;))

All I did was clean the pot with dish soap and a clean pot scourer to get any oil or dirt off to give the paint as clean as possible surface to adhere to. Then it was just a matter of spraying with a whilte gloss spray paint. I used plasti-kote projekt paint in a super gloss in white blanc.

I had to do a few coats, also because I'm a grade A clutz I put my finger right in the wet paint, but fortunately I was able to spot paint it a couple of time and you can hardly tell I did it!

I love how it turned out, better than I expected actually! I am going to store my knitting needles in it as I don't want to risk getting it wet (by using it as a flower vase). I am also considering maybe getting some thing to rub over it a dark paint perhaps to bring out the details of the little mushrooms. Not 100% convinced on that yet.

I would love to hear your thoughts, did you prefer it before or now, do you think I should use something to get bring out the features or leave well enough alone? What should I use? Let me know!

In other news I just want to direct your attention to a lonely little widget I have on my blog. It's the feedburner counter, as you can see there is only 1 lonely feed (which I think is me actually) so if you're a google reader (or similar RSS feed program) lover and want to have my blogs automatically added to your daily feed all you have to do is click on either click on the lonely little feed counter or you could also click a button up under the stalk me head on the right hand side, follow the prompts and viola!
Until next time, keep crafting xx.


  1. I think it looks great white! It's less detailed, but more sophisticated this way. Love.

  2. That's what I'm thinking Christy.

    Thanks for stopping by!


  3. this is a really good idea, will have to give this a go

  4. Thanks Polka Dot Rabbit, I loved how it turned out, to make the paint more durable maybe you could try using a sealer of some sort? I would love to see what you improve! Thanks for stopping by!
