Planter revamped Foil finish

 With spring here and patio season about to begin, adding in some decorative planters is a great way to create an inviting space.

This pot was found at Goodwill for about a dollar. {You can also check recycle bins at local nursery's for pots} It is a nice pot as is, though a bit plain.
 I used tacky spray to adhere the tin foil to the surface and then applied a coat of Mod Podge.
{Mod podge is the greatest stuff on Earth!}

 After an hour the Mod Podge dries clear and it is ready for paint.
 I used some black chalk paint and brushed it over the top.  I did not worry about fully coating the surface.  The last step is to sand the foil and paint.  It makes a nice finish and ready for planting. 
Happy Crafting!!
