diy project: erica’s faux porcelain project

by Grace Bonney

this clever faux-pottery project comes from diy queen erica domesek of p.s. i made this. inspired by mid century porcelain from west germany, erica decided to create the look of white porcelain using bottles, cans, spray paint and an elementary school flashback- puffy paint. this is a seriously fun- and simple- project that anyone could tackle on a rainy (or snowy) afternoon. thanks so much to erica for sharing- click here to check out more projects on her site.
