Step One.  Paint one coat of the Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint on the exterior of the spice tin.  Let dry completely and repeat.  I decided upon three coats of the paint.  It covered completely after the second coat, but I love the textured look that the added coats bring.

Step Two.  To protect the paint, you will add a thin layer of creme wax directly onto the dried paint with a soft cloth.  I used the clear wax, but you can find more tips  on how to distress a painted piece on the Tips and Techniques Page.

Step Three.  Once your wax has dried, you will add another coat of the creme wax.  Let it dry completely and they you can use a soft rag to buff the finish to a shine.

I love how it turned out and can’t wait to fill this vase with fresh flowers as the weather warms up.  Since the vase is metal, dry completely between uses to prevent rust on the inside of the container.
