Adding a personalized touch to your patio can be a great way to make your spa area even more enjoyable. I decided to spruce up our patio space with some colorfully painted terra cotta pots.
Supplies you will need:
- Terra Cotta Pots – I picked out a couple different sizes for variation.
- A painter’s cloth or old sheet you can lay down to protect your work area.
- Paint – choose your favorite colors!
- Painters tape to create fun designs on your pots.
- Paint brushes – I used two different sizes.
I started by applying a white base coat to my terra cotta pots so that the colors I chose would really pop. The easiest and quickest way to do this is by using a flat white spray paint/primer. Tip: The spray paint can get a little messy. It is important to choose a well ventilated area away from anything else the paint could stick to.
Now the fun part: designing and adding color to your pots! Get Creative! I chose my favorite colors - mint green, carnation pink and gold.
Using the painters tape, I taped off the designs I had envisioned for my pots and got started painting, using both gold spray paint and brushing on latex paint.
Tip: If you are planning on using two or more colors on a pot, using the tape will allow you to do this without accidentally mixing your colors.
For extra color I chose to paint the inside of my pots as well.
Fill Your Pots!
Once your paint has dried, choose some fun plants that will add some variety to your space. For my spa side decorative plants I chose a mixture of succulents and cacti.
Last but not least, choose where to enjoy your newly painted pots! I chose the bistro table beside the spa so the pots could be seen while relaxing in the hot tub.
