I tried a new spray paint, and it's fab. I shopped the spray paint shelf at a local store looking for something different to try and the Rustoleum Multicolor Textured Spray Paint caught my eye. The color I selected is Desert Bisque and it has a lot of neutral colors all mingled together....and texture too.
I found a few things I wanted to spray paint on my shelves. This nicely shaped flower vase I bought at the 400-mile yard sale was filled with artificial flowers and I took all the flowers out for an earlier project.
The next piece is a metal urn with a lid I bought at the flea market for $4. The look is a little outdated.
Then I grabbed the straight-sided pot from this group to paint.
I first painted the terra cotta pot with my favorite Rustoleum Heirloom Satin White spray paint color. Then I sprayed the Multicolor spray paint on the bottom two-thirds. Not exact on all sides. Just sprayed the paint. After that, I decided on a third color for the middle area.
I pulled this Rustoleum Gloss Cambridge Stone color from my paint shelf. I only used the Desert Bisque multicolor paint and the Cambridge stone color on the larger flower pot. It was already basically white or off-white.
A photo of the three paint colors I used and the three pieces I painted.
The terra cotta pot needed a little nautical rope hot glued around it for a coastal vibe. You can find my favorite battery-powered hot glue gun with NO cords here.
I really love the textured spray paint and the other colors together. I spray painted the metal urn with the multicolor textured spray paint all over the very lightly misted it with the Heirloom satin white paint color.
The rope-wrapped glass container is from the nautical projects I shared last week.
I think the larger pot filled with seashells is my favorite piece.
The darker paint on the bottom and then the multicolor spray paint on the upper part of the pot looks really cool.
In the closeup photo you can really see the multiple colors and the texture.
The photo above shows how the textured spray paint looks when it is wet. A little bubbly.
The terra cotta pot has the multicolor textured paint along the bottom part, the Cambridge stone in the middle and the Heirloom satin on the top.
Projects like these take minutes only. Really like 2 minutes. I did not wait for each color of spray paint to dry before spraying on the second and third color. Then they were dry in less than 30 minutes.

You should look around your home and find things to paint. Surely you have something that needs updating. Spray paint is so much fun! Thanks for being here, Kathy
