Tutorial: Paint a Terracotta Pot

Dear Chicago House,

I just love spring time. Call me a dork but there is something very thrilling about seeing pansy seeds I sowed a few weeks back burst into life.

I have not spent nearly enough time in your garden yet but I have made something pretty for it. Take a look at my painted terracotta pot.

So easy to do, you will need

A terracotta pot
White latex paint
Acrylic paints
Paint brush

Start by painting the entire pot, inside and out with a couple of coats of white latex paint. When the paint is dry sketch on a design and “color it in” with your acrylic paints. When it’s all done give it a couple of coats of polyurethane to seal everything.
