Distressing Cement Urns

Making urns look old world.
These are huge cement urns. Lowe's had just these two at the end of the season, sitting out front for less than $20.00 each. I watched them like a hawk, until my husband had gone into the store and paid for them and we loaded them into our vehicle. I love bargains!
1. Start by drilling a hole through the bottom of the urn.
2. Paint with dark brown oil enamel.
3. White paint. Spray with water while painting and brush, brush, brush.
4. Random gold leaf.
5. Turquoise patina (I make my patina by mixing paint and deluding with water). Spray with water while painting and brush, brush, brush.
6. I used a strong tea stain.
7. Spray varnish.
Beautiful ferns in my urns, sitting outside my outdoor studio.
