Terracotta Pots With A Twist

painted terracotta pots


The sun has been shining beautifully today and I felt like a bit of garden craftiness…

…all over sites like Pinterest, there are pictures of painted terracotta pots looking extremely chic inside people’s homes, out on patios and decorating greenhouses.  There were pots of mismatched colours, some that had been artificially aged to look beautifully vintage and others of a uniform colour, creating a bold statement.

I took two terracotta pots from my (ever-growing) collection and dug out one of my favourite Farrow and Ball colours ~ No. 18, French Gray.

After two coats of paint, the pots were ready to be filled with compost and planted up.

Instant joy!
