The topic of aging has been forefront in my mind these days since…well..ahem…I turned…forty… this past Friday. And while it takes years, hopefully, to age oneself, it only takes a few hours to age new gardening pots.
I found this pin on Pinterest (are you following us on Pinterest? We’d sure love it if you would!) several weeks back and just love the look of these aged blue terra cotta pots.
I knew that with some paint and a little elbow grease I could create some of my own.
They may not be identical but I think they definitely look like they’ve seen some years in the garden, instead of a few weeks on the store shelf.
Here’s all it takes to create this same look yourself.
Terra Cotta pots (new or old) in various sizes
spray paint and/or regular paint in the color of your choice (I just used some left over wall paint I had)
inexpensive foam craft brushes
Directions: (this couldn’t be easier)
Paint your pots, lighter on some heavier on others I painted the teal blue underneath some of the pots and the lighter color on top in layers. While paint is still slightly wet, take your sanding sponge and start to sand off the paint in areas that would normally receive wear.
Do this along the rim and bottom of pot. Also along any edges. For a more distressed look use the steel wool and heavily scrape off the pain along the surface. You can also use an exacto knife to chip off the paint. Take a hammer and lightly chip off some of the pot, revealing the terra cotta color underneath. Continue these steps until you get the look you want.
One of the benefits of having Better Homes and Gardens out to our house was I got to keep all of these gorgeous potted herbs that they purchased for the photo shoot!
They just happened to be some of our favorites!
I can’t wait to start enjoying our fresh herbs this year thanks to Better Homes and Gardens, and I’m so excited to be out working in the yard!
What outdoor projects are you “itchin’ to get working on?
