Pimp your flower pot!

TopfPimpen_D75_0943

Last year our landlord renewed our patio. Elegant anthracite coloured stone slabs. Unfortunately most of my flower pots look quite shabby on these lovely stones. Whether terracotta or plastic – not a pretty sight anymore. And then I came across an article in a garden magazine on how you can simply paint your flower pots. I had a bucket of white wall paint in the cellar. Perfect! I cleaned and washed the pot thoroughly. With a small paint roller I first painted the entire pot in white, and then in grey (I mixed in some black acrylic paint). I retraced the embossment in a darker shade of grey. The next day I varnished the entire pot with a water based varnish and stuck on the stones with my hot glue gun. I am really pleased with the result. Matches the stone slabs and the grey cat perfectly 😉 Now I just have to pimp all other pots and summer can come.
