DIY Clay Pots + Plants
I love having plants in the house. Money trees, aloe plants, succulents; they add “life” to a space. But to be honest, if it wasn’t for “J” the plants in our house wouldn’t last a month (yes, I have a terrible habit of killing anything green). Maybe it was the weather, but a few dreary Saturday’s ago I took a look around my house and decided it could use a touch more colour…. a little green and yellow perhaps?
Since I will forever be a neutrals kind-of-girl, it was a BIG deal for me to pop open Para Paints’ latest spring release, Plantain Chips. This burst of bright yellow is positively eye-catching!
While my first inclination was to paint these using the dip-method (because I am in love with all things “dipped” right now), I decided this bold & cheery yellow would add an unexpected brightness to the inside of my clay pots…
While the paint dried (literally) I took a quick trip to The Home Depot to pick up all my planting supplies… soil, filter cloth, gravel, and my plants.
I’m so happy with how this little dreary-day project turned out… the greenery has brought “life” to my kitchen windowsill, while the pop of yellow brings a cheeriness to the room!
Disclosure: The Home Depot provided me with a gift card that was used toward the materials for this project. Para Paints provided the sample of “Plantain Chips” paint. I was not compensated in any other way for writing this post. All opinions and use of products are my own.
These look so pretty, Brittany! Nicely done! Don't over water those plants.
Thanks for the tip Jordana! I'll take all the advice I can get!
