Painting Flower Pots with Waverly Chalk Paint

 Painting Flower Pots with Waverly Chalk Paint

Hello friends.

Did you have a good weekend? Mine went by quick (in the blink of an eye) but I’m glad to start a new week.  This week I’m starting an 8 week Bikini Series workout by Tone It up. It’s real easy to do. They send you a weekly workout schedule, recipes, nutrition plans, and a grocery list.

Let’s get healthy together! If you have been thinking about dropping a few pounds or just want to tone up then you need to check them out. I’ve been working out with them for about three years and I love these girls!

Next week I’ll do a roundup of some of my favorite work out necessities.

Painting Flower Pots with Waverly Chalk Paint

Enough blabbing, onto the DIY Chalk Paint Flower pot.

I have been cleaning my front and back porch and realized I have a lot of flower pots. Some are resin, plastic and others are terracotta. So I decided to spruce a few of them up with Waverly chalk paint I had left over from a previous project.

You may have noticed a peek at these flower pots in my recent posts (for my back yard redesign) like, planting Julia Child Roses or how to DIY a wooden sign for your garden.

How to Paint Flower Pots with Waverly Chalk Paint

This is how my flower pot looked before the makeover.

Yuk-right? I began by cleaning it off by wiping off dirt, then I washed it with dish soap and a brush then set it out to dry in the sun for a few hours. ( Make sure you let it completely dry before painting.)

Once it dries completely paint the flower-pot with Waverly Paint in Ink. The rim is painted in the same paint in plaster. I used just one coat. It dries quick.

I wanted initials in my design so I painted a 7 1/2″  x 5 1/2″ square to the front of the flower-pot to frame the letters “I & Z” the name of my new garden. The color I used is Mineral, then I filled in the square in the color plaster.

The stencils I had were to small so I made a bigger one by printing the size I wanted on my computer, then simply cut out the letters with a sharp blade.

The stencil is centered on the plaster square painted to front of flower-pot, then taped on ( I used clear shipping tape).

 Fill in the letters with the Waverly Chalk Paint in Mineral.

Take your time here so your letters are straight. Once it has dried completely give it a coat with Valspar Premium finish in clear gloss to seal and protect. (Sorry!  I forgot to add this in the supplies list)

Not bad. It looks like a brand new flower-pot.

I placed the stenciled flower-pot on top of another plastic flower-pot I painted in ink as well.

This DIY was easy and free!
