I wanted to try to paint it so I set about mixing chalk paint in a faint yellow- to match my kitchen. I wasn't sure how the chalk paint would do with this glaze finish on the pottery. Just to be sure I tried to do a sanding before I painted.
Here it is after the initial yellow painting. Then I traced the word "Blessings" in white.
I like the color, but am still contemplating if it needs to be distressed or not. As for the chalk paint holding up on this pottery piece- it is doing great!
I had some extra paint and looked around to find what else I could paint this color and found this.
Do you remember this from my door stop post? I thought I took a before picture of it cut off but I guess not.I had 2 of them but different sizes as I cut them off at different points. I thought they would make a nice touch of some more yellow in my kitchen. I painted them both in the same yellow chalk paint. I did not fill in the gaping hole but just painted it. The hole will not be seen since they are just a decoration.
Here they are after. I found a perfect spot for them on my secretary shelf next to my table. Very easy transformation. Give it a try!
