Getting past procrastination

Pin It

I have been bitten. Bitten by the procrastination bug. It is a vicious disease once bitten and hard to overcome. It takes perseverance. And tenacity. And time.

Getting a couple fresh coats of Heirloom White Spray Paint.
This pot had two former lives. It began as a red vase,
then was victim of a project gone wrong.

But I did it! I bit the procrastination bug in the behind and finished another project. This project started about two years ago. Seriously. 

On it's way to an old, vintage pottery
look using leftover paints.
So after sitting in my basement for a year and a half, then moving it up to my garage where I guess I thought if I had to look at it everyday I would be inspired to finish it! I walked past it everyday for about nine more months. Then, as my index finger was twitching with excitement at the prospect of spray painting something, I decided it was time to tackle this puppy and 'get 'er done.'

After several layers of browns and greys,
it finally has the vintage look I was after.

I went out back and cut some branches
 to fit inside and she is done.
It only took two years.
