As a landlord with over 20 years of experience, I've encountered my fair share of nail holes left behind by tenants. Every time someone moves out, I'm left with walls riddled with holes from nails, screws, and tacks.
 
My kids tore some paintings off the wall. This left quite a few nail holes. So I saw this as an opportunity to show how to patch nail holes in drywall. Here is one of the before pictures.

I spotted this pumpkin Halloween candle holder at my local thrift shop. Unfortunately it had a glitter layer over the top. It was subtle but I dont do glitter! So a textured look it was going to get!

Adding texture is really quite simple. You can add baking soda to any paint to give it a texture and thicken it up.
 
I wanted to keep the terra cota look of the piece so I picked up an acrylic paint…
