Life has been pretty busy around here lately! Working full time, blogging, and preparing for the DIY workshops is where I spend most of my time. I can’t complain; I love having so much creativity around me! I’m constantly getting ideas to share with you all.
Recently, I was shopping at the local craft store (aka my second home) when I saw that Krylon had a line of stone textured spray paint out. My inner “craft nerd” got super excited! Right away so many fun project ideas came to mind! The first one I wanted to share with you is this DIY mid-century modern planter.
To make the planter, I glued together a flower vase and a serving bowl. My mom gave me the idea to weigh down the base of the planter by pouring sand into it before I glued the bowl on. Then I used the all-powerful E6000 to secure the two vessels together. The next step was to spray paint! I love how the stone spray paint gave the planter just the right amount of “modern” to match our decorating style.
I’m loving how this one-of-a-kind piece looks on my bar cart! I honestly can’t wait to experiment with this paint some more; it’s super versatile. Let’s get to making!
Supplies for DIY mid-century planter:
Step one: Fill the glass vase halfway with sand.
Step two: Apply glue around the rim of the flower vase then place the serving bowl on top. Make sure the bowl is centered, then apply pressure. Let the glue dry.
Step three: It’s time to spray paint. Hold the can of paint about a foot away from the planter and begin painting. Coat the entire vase with one layer then let the paint dry for 15 minutes. Then repeat 4-5 times or until the planter is coated evenly.
