Spring has arrived. I had been patiently waiting to repaint this old terracotta plant pot for my deck. I have been warned that terracotta will absorb moisture, and cause the paint to bubble, but I got a really great deal on this oversized planter from the local Restore so I thought I would give it a try. I bought some black metallic spray paint, and went to work. It only took two coats, and 24 hours to dry.
I do not claim to be an expect in planting. I mentioned before that I am still finding my green thumb, so my gardening posts are pretty much a documentation of my journey along the way. Thanks for tagging along.
I am very pleased with the finished product. Have you experimented with plants yet this Spring?
Here are some pictures of the painting process:
