Upcycled Faux Cement Planter
We are adding the project to your Holiday Projects.
The project was added to your Holiday Projects.
"I had a wooden box that had been sitting around in storage. Perfect for an upcycle. I found faux metal fencing at the #dollartree hoping I could use it along the outside of the box. I snipped the spikes from the bottom.In the end, the faux metal fencing looked better tucked inside the back of the box. BTW, if you use an old box for an upcycle you'll need to drill a few holes for drainage. Next I gave the entire box a coat of Chalk Country Paint . When it dried, I added more paint with some raw unsweetened coconut mixed inside to create texture. I added the now, texture paint, to several spots. I normally use saw dust to add texture but hey, a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do. It worked. Although I should have been more diligent with my mixing because some of the coconut shows through .As an after thought I decided to dry brush some green onto the texture to create the look of moss."
