Vintage Home Interiors Copper Pans Up-cycle


I picked up the set of three copper pans at a thrift shop for $2.99.

I used to own them in the late 1970's and early 1980's when I decorated in the Early American style.  They were made by Home Interiors, and sold through home parties.  (I'm sure mine were sold long ago at a garage sale.)

Crazy me, I re-purchased another set!

After wiping them down, I primed them with a couple of coats of Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover 2X White Primer.  I like to prime raw metal when I will be using a chalk type paint.

I like to spray paint outdoors!


I opted to paint the pans black and brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in CAVIAR.  I used a sponge brush and got few brush strokes.

Caviar is such a rich black!

I wet distressed the pan edges lightly with a damp green scrub pad.  The distressing has both copper and/or white primer showing through the black chalk paint.

I then waxed the pans with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear.

I think the light distressing adds interest to the black pans!
