Hey Hey! As promised in last Friday’s personal post, I’ve got a little project to share with y’all today. Like most Moms, I LOVE coffee. My sweet, sweet husband makes me a travel cup of delicious french pressed coffee every. single. morning, without fail. I know, he’s the best. I also like tea, especially the fruity varieties. Anyway, this post isn’t about tea or coffee, but it IS about an adorable little non-functional, for decorative purposes only, TEAPOT.
I bought this cute teapot at a yard sale for $0.25. I just couldn’t pass up the perfect white combined with the natural wood elements. It’s rusty on the inside and on the bottom of the lid. I knew I would never use it for it’s original intended purpose but I also knew it could be beautiful as a decorative piece. I’ve had it for over a year and inspiration finally struck! I found this gorgeous little Marimekko Rasymatto Rag Rug Teapot from Always Mod and knew instantly I wanted to put a similar pattern on my little rusty teapot. My favorite colors, plus natural wood texture and Scandi vibe. Perfect.
I cleaned her up, because man she was dusty. And rusty. After that I grabbed a chisel tipped black Sharpie marker and started mimicking the pattern from the inspiration teapot. It’s basically a bunch of different sized dots, some connected, some not. This is such an easy little update because you don’t have to get too perfect and precious with your dots. I think it turned out great and it looks just how I wanted it to!
For now I added some fresh flowers to it for fun but typically I have Stevia packets for coffee and morning cereal stored in it for easy access.
Update: I decided to plant a succulent in the teapot. Love it!!
Do you think you’ll trying this out? Sharpie projects are all over the place and I’ve even made a couple of my own. They’re just so easy and versatile! Thanks for reading today and HAVE A FAB WEEKEND!
