I had a lot of Terracotta pots laying round that I wanted to paint and update with chalk paint. I wanted a white washed look with a bit of the terracotta colour coming through. I sealed them with an acrylic varnish and sealer.
This was a terracoota coloured plastic urn, that was very ugly. I painted it with 2 different grey chalk paint colours. Dabbing a white with hint of grey over the raised bits to give an aged look.
These now look 100% better. I like to plant succulents as they don't need much watering and always look good in the pots.
