I had two of these pots sitting at my mom's house for awhile. I got them at Lowe's years ago. They are heavy and made out of clay. I was looking at them one day and thought they could be so much cuter with a little paint :). Why not right? We paint everything else......When painting pots you need to make sure you get a paint that will adhere. Sometimes you have to do a little test patch. Not fun, but it will save you time in the long run.
I went to Michaels and found a paint that would stick to all types of surfaces including clay. It's a Folk Art brand. I painted these all over with a shiny black so my accent colors would pop.
Then I added some white and gold.
Once completed, I gave these a good spray with Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane so that they can be protected in the sunlight.
They make me happy when I pull in the driveway. So go ahead and paint some pots. Add some "sprinkles" to your yard.
