DIY Chippy Paint Farmhouse Watering Can Makeover
Antiques – We don’t mind that it’s chippy and old. We don’t care if it’s faded, rusty, or worn. We love the story behind it. The history within it and the patina on it.
Today, we are featuring Rhonda from Hallstrom Home:
NEW OR VINTAGE MAKEOVER – DIY CHIPPY PAINT WATERING CAN
Re-purposing something old into something new is so fun and easy with the right products. I’m going to walk you through the process of how you can make your own DIY Chippy Paint Watering Can. Since farmhouse decor is the latest trend in home accents, I thought this would be a fun project so you can still have this style yet with your own unique twist. For me, it’s choosing my color that is key. On this one, I used a light aqua blue chalk-style paint.
To pick the perfect watering can for this DIY is very simple. You can grab a vintage watering can at your grandmother’s house. Or you can order a new watering can online. Both options will give you the same look, but I’m sure grandmother’s watering can would look just a wee bit better.

WATER CAN INSTRUCTIONS
The key to creating this DIY Chippy Paint Watering Can is a product called Salt Wash. You will add this loose power to your chalk-style paint to get a thick toothpaste consistency. So grab your watering can, vintage or new will work. Now you are going to start dabbing this paint on. Once it dries, The paint will start crackling where it has been applied in a thick manner. I then added clear wax to preserve the finish.
I also want to thank Salvage Sister and Mister for having me here. It is such an honor to share this DIY Chippy Paint Watering Can with you all.
