Makeover Monday : French Farmhouse DIY Urn

I feel like I have been on a roll at the thrift store late­ly. This thrift store urn caught my atten­tion right away with its French Farm­house DIY vibes. I paid a whop­ping 25 cents for this lit­tle piece with BIG poten­tial among some oth­er great thrifty decor finds from that day!

The next time you’re out thrift­ing or maybe you find your­self pump­ing the breaks for a yard sale, keep this lit­tle urn in mind. This is one of those pieces with “good bones.” The shape, the texture…all the things are right but it just needs a lii­i­i­itle some­thing. That’s where this makeover comes in.

Here she is. Cute.…but lack­ing. And if you know any­thing about thrift­ing, the first rule is always this. A lit­tle paint goes a looooong way. I used a col­or by Rus­toleum called French Beige for this project and there was plen­ty left­over for future French Farm­house DIYS

Here is the paint I used. I grabbed it up from Lowe’s but I’m sure it can be found any­where that car­ried the Rus­toleum brand. The col­or is soft and per­fect for oth­er French farm­house DIY ideas.

This makeover just required a lit­tle paint and a repur­posed euca­lyp­tus gar­land. If you’re start­ing from scratch, I high­ly rec­om­mend some flo­ral foam to com­plete this look.


This is the final result of a lit­tle bit of paint and a recy­cled gar­land. Sim­ple, ele­gant, and French inspired. It is a wel­come change from my clas­sic rus­tic look in my home and I am enjoy­ing it styled on my cof­fee table, paired with old books and a candle.
