Vowing to bring color and fun into my life and considering my home to be an ongoing craft project, I hand painted some very plain clay pots. They are whimsical for sure and make me smile. Having a primer already mixed in, I used leftover trim exterior house paint. Three coats later the terra-cotta color had finally disappeared. I used chalk to sketch in my designs, which is easily washed off to make any corrections or change a design. Then I just let my imagination run amuck. Poker-dots, stripes, squiggles and swirls, they are fun fish after all! Several coats of a clear sealer completed the job.
I have them tucked away between shrubs or strategically placed so I can enjoy them from a particular window. Went to the nursery and asked what survives on sheer neglect and three Plumbago won the prize. Planted some pink vinca as well, I am told they are drought tolerant. Let's wait and see if they survive my southern green thumb!
One could say they are funky fish pots and who knows where they will swim to next!!!
Just love that word funky!!!
Have a great day!
