Makeover Your Old Teapots

Whether it's an ocean-inspired blue with seashells, a textural play with leather wrapping and earthy tones, or wallpaper découpage with bright colors, you can choose the best fit for your decor (and personality), then use Carter's simple techniques to make your old teapot all your own, all over again!
