Up-Cycled Ceramic Boot Vase/Flower Pot


 This ceramic, flowered, burgundy colored boot vase was my mom's.

 I thought it was pretty cool, but I wanted to give it a makeover with my style.

It's about 14" tall.


First, I brushed on two coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black. 

I used a Zibra brush to minimize the brush strokes.  A sponge brush would work pretty well too.

I did not distress the paint at all.



I used this Hampton Art Stencil from Joann Fabrics again.


I taped the word "Organic" onto the both sides of the boot and pounced on the lettering with Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain.

I very lightly sanded the stenciling with 220 grit sandpaper, applying very light pressure.  I did this just to make the stenciling a little more transparent.

Since this vase/flowerpot will be used indoors, I didn't use any sealer.  Fusion Mineral Paint is self sealing.

Now my boot looks like a black rubber boot!

It has a more rustic/farmhouse vibe!

I added a couple of "organic" (ha ha) faux cotton stems in the boot.

The cotton stems are 30" tall.  I purchased them at a local drug store's gift department.
