Painting Galvanized Steel

6:00:00 PM

These galvanized steel watering cans were
not vintage... cute but needed some help.


As I've said before... Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
can stick to almost anything!


I painted the watering can with Robins Egg Blue
then gave it a coat of matte sealer.


The image was actually ironed on 
using Riley's TAP Paper and then distressed with
sandpaper and yes... it was a little tricky but it worked!

I distressed the edges of the watering can with 
sandpaper to distress it a little bit.


Now it looks much better... fill it with flowers, 
use it to water plants,  or give it as a gift.

  3. I have some watering cans somewhere. I think probably the person who picked up junk last spring thought they were junk and hide them from me.

  4. What a great way to "age" some newer home décor! Love the color you chose, too. And you can never go wrong with bees, I always say:)

  7. Susan, these are too cute. Glad to know about the chalk paint can be used this way - never crossed my mind to used on metal. I don't blog much anymore but try to keep up with some of the ones I follow. It looks great!
