Upcycling... Pottery?

You guys remember the Kitchen Floor re-tile job... which led to the Kitchen Painting job?  Well that lead to the my pottery canister set from the 90's DO NOT WORK IN MY KITCHEN ANYMORE!!!
These just had to go!

First step was to fix the lids!
Since I didn't have anything to lose really... I spackled then sanded the lids to repair the cracks...
Then painted over the entire canisters with my Coastal Colors paint in Summer's Fog.
The paint adhered beautifully and only took 2 coats.

 Here is the set today... I top coated with Coastal Colors Liquid Steel to prevent chipping... and they are working beautifully for me... and I saved the landfill of my poor outdated set... and saved my wallet from buying a new set!  WIN/WIN, right?
I will probably add some shells to these... I will keep you posted how that works for me.  
So yes, you can paint pottery with awesome results!
