Today's post is another DIY post. I am such a succulent addict and when I was in Amsterdam picked up these mini pots and knew that I wanted to do a bit of a painted plant pot diy tutorial. You can get these pots at the garden centre and of course this turotial would work for larger pots too, although whatever size these are only suitable for indoors. I'm using my favourite Annie Sloan paint as it has a gorgeous chalky finish, but you could also use normal emulsion and tester posts are a great way to buy small amounts of lots of colours.
So here's what you need to do to make these cute painted plant pots.
you will need
TERRACOTTA POTS | PAINT INC WHITE | BRUSHES | SHARPIE MARKER | CLEAR TOPCOAT/ GLAZE
I started by painting grey as a base or primer as the Annie Sloan "Pure" colour white is a little thin. You could paint straight on with a white emulsion.
Why dry sand the primer so the finish is nice and smooth.
Paint your white colour and again when dry sand it lightly to achieve a smooth finish.
I decided to paint four pots in a mismatched style and drew out my designs before hand.
I painted the tops of each one a different colour. As well as the chalk colours I used my metallic gold paint too to add gold details and a top trim to one pot.
The gold on each pot ties the whole four pots together. I used Annie Sloan Antoinette (Pink), Provence (Turquoise) Lem Lem ( Green) and Pure (White)
I added dots and lines with a simple black sharpie pen or you could use black paint too.
Seal in the designs with a clear sealer or top coat careful not to smudge the black parts which have a tendency to run sometimes.
Once dry pot your fave real or fake succulents inside and put them on display. And that's it. Super quick and really pretty. You can create any designs you want and I love the mismatched look of my four.
