White Washed Pots for the Patio
Now that summer is almost here, I wanted to add some flowers to my patio. The problem was that the plastic flower pots that I had weren't that pretty! I came up with an easy project with some paint I already had on hand. I wanted to give my inexpensive planters and pots a new look. The below photo shows what the pots looked like when I started out.
I've seen white washed pots online and think they are so pretty! I decided to white wash my pots. The project took about a half an hour. All I did was spread some watered down Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint (in Everlasting) on the pots with a foam brush. I made sure to wipe the painted surfaces with a a paper towel after painting the pots to give the finish a uniform finish.
Once the pots were painted, I filled them with potting soil, impatiens and petunias. I chose impatiens and petunias because my home's patio faces the west and tends to get a mixture of sun and shade.
I love how the painted pots and colorful flowers look on the patio!
This was such an easy project -- I might want to white wash some pots for my home's front porch, too!
