pots-done

One of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to inject a bit of personality into any garden is to pump up the garden decor. Painting pots is easy, fast and really makes an impact of your outdoor spaces.  Here are three tips for painting pots, and a bunch of great projects with instructions, and inspiration!

Painting Pots Tips

  • Choose the same style for all your painted pots within the same garden. If half your pots are formal and the other half are whimsical (although there is always room for some crossover) then your outdoor spaces will seem disjointed. Keep in mind the same decorating principles you use indoors…tie the pots together by style or color.
  • Follow the instructions for prepping your pots properly. (Then say that ten times fast.) Outdoor painting projects can deteriorate quickly if they are done lazily…it’s worth the extra step.
  • Consider sealing your painted pots with an outdoor grade clear sealer. Same reason as prepping properly!
  • Enjoy!

Since dipped pots seem so popular right now, we thought you would like this neon dipped pot project from Hello Bee.

We really like this project from Amanda at Wit & Whistle. Here’s how she did it.

From Sunset, Terra Cotta Dress Ups! You could do these in any color combo, but I like the idea of keeping it to one color with a neutral, or two colors for a more lively look. Any more than that and it will be a very “busy” project! I especially love this project because it’s done in my favorite colors!

These golden fall planters from A Night Owl Blog don’t need to wait for fall as far as I’m concerned! What a great project for bringing some of the metallic trend into the garden.
