Now that we are in the process of re-decorating my office I wanted to add a little splash of color to my walls. This is when Pinterest took a couple of hours out of my afternoon. I stumbled upon this great blog post by Oak Furniture Land, 10 DIY Pretty Plant Pots You Can Create This Weekend. Can we say the title was all I needed to read to know this was it.
After work I went straight to the store and found myself some cute little succulents and terra cotta pots. The plants were a whopping $2 each and the pots + plates were $1.40 each. I considered this a steal.
I had left over acrylic paint and brushes from a previous antler project (I will post about it soon I promise!) As I painted I found that I preferred a bristle brush over the sponge.
Taking a note from Miss Renaissance I used washi tape (or painters tape could be used too) to section off the area I wanted gold for pot #1 and #3. The other two pots I used a metallic gold sharpie.
