In preparation for installing our hang-a-pots this weekend I gave some $1 terra cotta pots a makeover with a couple of cans of spray paint. I used Krylon indoor/outdoor spray paint with a gloss finish in ivy and bahama sea.
Step 1: Tape the rim of the pots with blue painters tape
Step 2: Find a well ventilated area to spray paint, for me it was a little table covered with a drop cloth in the middle of my backyard. Position your posts.
Step 3: Apply several thin layers of spray paint, let dry between coats (this paint recommends 1 minute between coats).
Step 4: Remove tape and admire your work! (Whoops switched pots on ya!)
We’ll be hanging these babies on the fence this weekend, weather permitting!
