My Little French Crock for Utensils

My last trip to Goodwill resulted in a couple of finds that I knew could be transformed. The first project I shared was a little cherub for the wall, which you can see here. The second project is a little crock I transformed into a kitchen utensil holder, with a bit of French flair.

I’m getting ready to re-do my kitchen in a French Country theme.
Not a major overhaul … just decorative touches for now.
So yes, I realize this label from Graphics Fairy is a perfume label 
and would be better suited for the bedroom. Sigh. Details!
All I know is, I liked the picture.
The little crock looked like this when I bought it for 99 cents. 
I dry-brushed white gesso on it to give it a little more depth.
You could get the same affect with a flat, white paint.
I printed the label from Graphics Fairy, added a little bit of Distressed Ink, 
and then applied the label with Mod Podge.
Once the Mod Podge dried, I brushed another coat of Mod Podge over the entire pot and label.
I’ve had that rolling pin for over 30 years. I bought it at a garage sale for 75 cents.
It’s seen its share of pie crusts and cinnamon rolls … and still works like a charm.
The wooden spoons are a little beat up. I prefer not to use a mixer.
The stool is one of a pair from the local flea market. You can read about the stool makeover here.
I’m still gathering things for the kitchen to give it a French flair. Painting cabinets is next.
