I was given these bathroom containers and was not a fan so I decided to give them a face lift. I almost turned them down but I knew that I would come up with something to make them likable,
Before containers. Notice the chipped away fake chrome bases.
I used stuff I had on hand for this transformation. Black spray paint, masking tape, clear coat spray, and brown acrylic,
I used newspaper and masking tape to mask the entire ceramic body and spray painted the chrome look bases and lids with the black spray paint. Then I let it dry.
After the black paint was dry I removed the tape/masking newspaper.
I tore off small pieces of the masking tape and covered the entire ceramic portion of the container and then I covered the masking tape with the brown acrylic paint to give it the leather look.
The deed is done! Not so bad ay?
