I was working on this at night, and the photos were taken inside. I try to never use the flash, but I had no choice this time. I gave it two coats of the spray paint, and allowed it to dry overnight.
Then next step was my favorite part of the whole project. I love using this GedeO Gilding Wax on anything I can get my hands on. I seriously love this stuff. That tiny little jar has decorated an amazing amount of projects, and there is still a lot left in it.
I used my medium sized flat bristled paint brush and simply rubbed the gilding on the areas I wanted to highlight. As always, I got a carried away. I was only going to gild a few places on it, but the details it adds are so amazing I just kept going. I really had no intention of adding the gold at the top, but I am so glad I did.
Here is a little sneak peek of my Dollar Store pumpkin topiary fall arrangement using my makeover planter! You can click here to see Part 2 of this post and the tutorial for this arrangement.
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit! I am trying to get all of my fall decor posted. Stay tuned for more to come!!
