DIY: Painted Terra Cotta Pots

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!

    These look lovely! I know what you mean, it’s always nice to have some green space around even if it’s tiny.
