How to do a "Geode-Inspired Paint-Pour" on a wooden chair- Inspired by Anthropologie geode drawer knobs
This project was so fun and easy, even though it looks like you need to be a super don't.
I found this Pottery Barn desk chair at a yard sale for 5.00 and you'll never believe what I did to it!
I was inspired by these Geode knobs I bought at Anthropologie.

The finished Product! A beautiful, functional piece of art!
A simple design of all the colors poured out in thin lines is the starting point for this fun technique.
Spray with a water until paint is thin and runny and then tilt in different directions until you achieve the look you want.
Sand with a sanding sponge until all the colors pop to desired finish and then seal with DIY PAINT Big Top Sealer. A key thing to note before you start this project, is that you will need to mix a 50/50 ratio of Big Top (pictured above) with every paint color you decide to use. If you don't do this, the results will not be the same. Watch my video or read the blog post for more details on this tip.
I also used DIY PAINT Golden Ticket on the metal legs of this chair for a finished look.
Let dry overnight. You can create this geode-look to any piece of furniture.
