First, I painted the entire flower pot inside and out with Amulent Furniture and Decor Paint in Palm Leaf. Amulent Paint is amazing and I am SOLD!!!! I let the Palm Leaf dry overnight and then painted the flower pot with Amulent Furniture and Decor Paint in Coal. Before the Coal dried I did a color wash on specific portions of the flower pot. 220 grit sandpaper was then used to create a distressed look. Rust-Oleum Outdoor Metal Sealant (non-yellowing) was applied to the entire piece (inside, outside, and bottom) to protect from daily use and water. If you look closely at the flower pot you can see a variety of different colors making this Swirl piece truly one-of-a-kind!!
