Clearance Bin Ugly Flower Pot Makeover

Ever find end-of-summer deals that are just too good to pass up but the color is off or just doesn’t match your decor? Tattered Angels High Impact Paints to the rescue!  Gina has been busy giving her pots a fantastic makeover and wow do they look awesome.  You can update old pots you have hanging around, grab some inexpensive pots at the dollar store or find great deals on good quality pots that are on clearance at the end of the season.  Give the used ones a good wash to get ready to transform them.

Recently, I found the perfect sized flower pots and I was looking for some with fantastic texture.  The only issue was the color was just “meh,” but the price was terrific so into my cart they went. Tattered Angels High Impact Paint in Gold was the perfect pick-me-up these flower pots needed to shine and feature my new favorite cactus.  If your pots don’t have texture but you would like to add texture consider adding a layer of old tissue or newspaper crumpled up by gluing into place, don’t worry about the color or the print, it will disappear.  Or cover the outside with burlap and let it dry and then glue it into place.  Creating your own texture is a good way to use up tissue, wrapping, fabric and other items in your stash that are cool and just need to find a good creative home.
Materials Used:

Painted Flower Pots with Tattered Angels

Paint your flower pots to match your personal style.

This flower pot makeover was super easy and super quick. I simply used a tack cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt, applied the Tattered Angels High Impact Gold Paint with a medium brush, and when it was dry I lightly sanded it to bring out some of that original color from underneath. It picked up that fantastic texture and added a bit of shiny personality to my new flower pot.  This project took less than an hour from start to finish (dry time will depend on weather conditions-it’s HOT in Arkansas and I painted outdoors) but will bring endless happiness to me and my cactus!

Painting up your pots is great, but why not play with a little paper to dress them up?  Sarah of The Rosy Life Blog created this fun pot that is perfect for the porch, kitchen or maybe a teacher gift.  The paper may not hold up very well outside, but inside it gives your plants a whole new look.

Happy Creating!!!
