Creating an Aged Look With Paint

Giving a Metal Pot an Aged Look With PaintI found a pot that I wanted to use for my potting soil storage. I wanted to paint and change the look, by making it look older and more vintage looking.

  5. With your craft paints and sea sponge (works the best), put a small amount of paint on paper or paper plate and lightly dab into colors. Tap it onto paper to make sure it is not too heavy for the piece and use one color at a time. Lightly tapping gives that worn look of vintage.

The results are beautiful, but it looks as if you used a brand new pot. I hope you didn't.
