dipped pitcher

For my kitchen update, I made this little paint dipped pitcher. I wanted some cheap and easy projects to help incorporate the teal/turquoise in the room. I found this pitcher at a thrift store and bought some spray paint.
I taped off the bottom of the pitcher and spray painted the top, then when that dried, I taped a line again, this time over the spray paint so that I could paint the white on the bottom. I just used a sponge brush and some gloss paint. The hardest part was getting the line straight with the tape because the pitcher is rounded. But other than that this was a pretty quick little project.

  9. What a gorgeous project! I've seen lots of "dipped" chair and table legs, but I think this is by the far the best "dipped" project! Beautiful!
