How’s your garden area looking at this time of the year? Mine was in need of some texture and colour and I decided the easiest way to jazz up my outdoor space was to paint some cheap terracotta pots with some spray paint from White Knight Paints. I didn’t have to spend a lot of money to inject some new life in-to a corner of my back verandah and this project was so easy and quick to do.
I popped to my local hardware store and chose 3 different sized pots. I wanted to paint them roughly with tones of white, grey and black.
I bought a few different heights in plants. And I have a succulent garden at home so I knew I could pull some out of that to put in a pot…
I gathered a couple of colours from the White Knight Paints range. I ended up using the undercoat, Riverstone and Black for this project. You can check out the full range of colours here. Squirts is a quick drying, hard wearing enamel spray paint and was ideal for these pots.
Here’s a short video on how it all went down!
First I sprayed all the pots in an undercoat white.
Then I went over them all with Rivertsone (it’s a light grey/tan colour). It does look white in these photos, but they are a little more stone looking in real life…
With this pot below I roughly sprayed just the base in black, and roughed it up with a paint brush followed by the eletric sander – just to give it a rougher feel.
I decided to tape up a section across the bottom of this pot…
I really roughed them up with the sander. I wanted them to not be perfect so I wasn’t fussy with the spraying and coverage. I wanted them to age in the weather outside too.
And… here they are…
White Knight Paints have also produced a video series called #WhiteKnightRevive which includes bathroom and kitchen refreshes, a deck rescue, a chair makeover, concrete porch and Colorbond fence refreshes, a bathtub transformed into a loveseat, a drum turned desk, and a bookcase turned in to a dollhouse. The videos can be viewed on the White Knight YouTube page and the accompanying step-by-step tutorials can be downloaded at www.whiteknightpaints.com.au. Check out this fence video below! Amazing!
Have you got a pot laying around which could do with a spray paint to give it some new life?
