I first saw this idea on one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess (check them out!) and I decided to give it a try. It has been a personal mission of mine to have an urban garden in my New York City apartment, however, I haven’t had the best luck keeping my plants alive:/ This year i’m giving my not so green thumb a second chance and I kick started it with this lovely project.
Choose 3 colors for your pot. Paint the whole outside of your pot one color (I used white). Let dry, apply a second coat. Once dry paint the bottom half of your pot (two coats). Once the outside of your pot is dry, paint the inside using two coats. That’s it!
