This past weekend we spent the majority of our time outside prepping and refreshing more of our outdoor spaces. I am in the process of doing a full spring refresh on our back stoop and eventually our back patio. I love a fun and easy DIY to add the little extra and personal touch to any space, and I have been wanting to try this method of aging Terra Cotta Pots, and thought this was the perfect time to do it. These turned out so wonderful, check it out!
- Terracotta planters, any size
- Garden Lime
- Mixing Bowl
- Paint Brush, any kind
- Optional: Clear Coat
- Prepare a workspace by laying down newspaper, cardboard, or something that you won’t worry about dirtying
- Flip your terracotta pots upside down on your workspace
- Mix two cups of garden lime with 2 Cups of Water
- Stir Thoroughly
- With your paintbrush paint over your pots with a thick coat, this is your chance to get creative! We worked in layers to achieve the naturally aged look. But this is the part that is totally up to you.
- Apply a second or third coat if desired
I love how muted the pots are now & yet you can still tell that they are terracotta pots they now just look a little more aged and weathered. I will be trying different methods & different ways to age soon, but I have to say I love how this one turned out!
