Pots with Pizzazz

Hi Readers,
It's been a great weekend but it's soon to be Monday...let me share with you one of my many projects. I wanted to bring a little color to the backyard near the steps....this is what I came up with.


before..... boring too matchy-matchy


coming to life


POW!
I used leftover paint from my desk



much better....I used rub n' buff to highlight the rim on the pots and I  did a titch of distressing


While painting my pots my assistants were right there with me..........


Sadie is up to her usual.....napping


Abby is double checking my work

  12. What a difference! I LOVE them :-) I am still trying my hand at Rub 'N Buff, but so far haven't gotten the right touch. It just wants to glob up on me. Do you have any tips to share?
