Sometimes you can find the cutest little things but they don’t fit with your decor or might be looking a little worse for wear. This sure was the case for this little watering can that I found awhile back at my local thrift store. So today I’m sharing a fun way on how to Upcycle An Old Watering Can.
How To Upcycle An Old Watering Can
Do I Have To Use A Primer When Painting Metal?
Depending on where you are going to display your watering can will depend if you have to base coat with a primer or ultra grip.
If you were to have your watering can out on a porch exposed to the elements then I would recommend popping on some ultra grip for extra durability against the elements.

Step 1 – Give the whole watering can a good clean with TSP. Then grab your brush and give the main part of the watering can 2 coats of Fort York Red. Tape of the handle and the spout and give them 2 coats of Coal Black.
Step 2 – Once dry choose your decor transfer from the classic pots range. Line up and press firmly to transfer the image.
Now you’re all ready to decorate with your fresh new watering can. Pop in some faux flowers or real some real flowers. The possibilities are endless.
