the chameleon flower pot

Ok…I’m starting SMALL!  After the kitchen reno, I’m just easing back into things.  For instance… this little arrangement that I had in a bookshelf in my kitchen no longer seems color appropriate.  Cute.. just needs a little chameleon-like makeover.

Because I tried like heck to pull those flowers out didn’t want to ruin the arrangement I covered the flowers tightly with a plastic bag.

I’m going to be honest here, I went blindly on this one.  I have a garage filled with paint cans and I just wanted to use what I had.  I wasn’t sure that paint was actually going to adhere to the ceramic. 
I used my favorite primer KILZ and it did the trick!

Then onto the right color for the kitchen, and (insert time lapse here) VIOLA.
