$3 Thrift Store Flip

By Jennifer Howard

I've had this Magnolia antique brass fluted pot in my cart for weeks!! I love it but for $30 I decided to try to find something similar when I was out thrifting. 

Thrift Store Find

On my last trip to my local thrift store I saw 2 of these silver containers for $3 each.

Spray Paint

I did 2 coats of Krylon Hammered Gold spray paint.  They look better already!

Let the Paint Dry

Let the paint dry completely before moving on...

Add Antique Wax

To get more of an antique brass vibe on this planter I dabbed on Waverly antique wax over the entire surface.

Remove Excess Wax

After a couple of minutes I used a clean towel and dabbed off all the extra wax.
