Chiminea Makeover

Chiminea Makeover Before Pics! #DIY #chimineaI have been travelling to meet my parents in Arizona for years now andย every year I am falling in love with the new decorative additions my mom has added to her place. She has very cool hanging etched wine glasses that house a small candle, solar lanterns, kokopelli’s that hang off pots and stand on the ground and my favourite the chiminea. A few years ago I bought a small version that I could fit in my suitcase to bring back as a small reminder of my visits to them.

Recently while browsing some sale ads I came across this chiminea and immediately jumped on it. I knew I could transform it into a larger version of my mini. Of course when you see a photo of it you can’t really tell the type of shape it actually is until you get it. This one had some sort of a painted on sponge technique that actually made it really really bumping and impossible to paint evenlyโ€ฆ soโ€ฆ the long process of sanding off all the bumps and making it nice and smooth.

Once I had my design traced then I was able to start painting nice bright vibrant colours. I then used market to outline all the drawings similar to my mini version. When everything was dry I sprayed it with a protective sealant to ensure it was weather resistant since I planned to keep it on my deck.

Here is the results!! I seriously love it!
