I had an old flower pot that was just sitting in storage. I decided to give it an update and add a little greenery to a corner of the living room.
Vintage Concrete Look Flower Pot
I gave my flower pot a vintage, chalky concrete look with paint and white wax.
I originally got this pot from a garden center for a few dollars a few years back. I wanted to make this look like a weathered dark concrete planter.
I started by painting the pot and saucer with my charcoal chalk paint that I had left over from another project.
I have it three coats to be sure I had good coverage. I let it dry completely between each coat.
After the paint was dry, I used an old sock to wipe on white finishing wax. This gives that worn and chalky look to the pot.
I wiped on the wax and rubbed it in until I got the look that I wanted.
I took a few layers to get it right.
Then I just popped in my new little plant.
The plant was the only thing I had to buy. I had all the supplies on hand. I love trying to upcycle using what I have. The price is always right this way!
