Over the weekend, I managed to squeeze in a little DIY project for the kitchen. I love the look of aged terra cotta pots
I especially like them in the window of kitchens
So of course I gave some that I picked up at Walmart a little makeover. Starting with a brand new pot
I used some extra wall paint that I had and dabbed a little on the brush
Be careful with how much paint you use on the brush. This is really dry brushing so all you need is a little. The amount hat you see on my brush now is a bit much, so I dabbed a little off on the paper towel.
The next step is easy. Just start brushing on the paint. Because there isn’t a lot on the brush, it will take a few seconds to cover the pot, but it will not look like it was painted intentionally.
Because I wanted to add a little dimension to my pot, I added another color on top of the gray. I used the same technique except this time I used a tad more paint and rubbed it off with a paper towel
Just continue to add and take away paint until you get the look you want.
Now I need to purchase more plants for my aged pots
I’m sharing this over at the Nester’s plant linky party!
