Hello all! I am slowly but surely getting our house spring ready! Hopefully I will get it all done before summer! First stop was the mantel since that's the most noticeable area in the living room. I pulled out the moss letters and canvas ruffle wreath from last year. I had picked up a few mini terra cotta pots from Hobby Lobby and wanted to incorporate them somehow. I wanted them to be a little more aged looking so I decided to distress them myself. It is so easy and only took a few minutes to do them. Opening a can of paint when my kids are awake is typically a bad idea but I got it done before they even noticed what was happening. =)
You will need:
- White chalk paint
- Small paint brush
- Terra cotta pots
- Wet wash cloth
- Sanding block
And that's it! So easy! I really like how they turned out. I'm thinking about doing some bigger ones for our front porch this year.
I put little river rocks in the bottom of the pots to fill the space and then added little candles to the top.
