DIY Hand Dipped Glazed Pot

Happy Friday!
Do you get the itch to plant once
Spring arrives?
I do!!
By this time most of my indoor herbs have seen better days.
So for me hitting the garden center in early Spring is must.
Bringing fresh herbs into my home again makes
me so incredibley excited, happy, & giddy.
Does this make you happy too?
And with that comes the search for pots.
Am I right?
What to re-use, what to buy & what to paint.
Here is a quick tutorial to giving your pots an
original hand dipped glazed look.
1. Find your pot.
2. Pick out base color(spray paint) & contrast color(latex).
Spray your pot.
3. Flip pot over. Take your contrast color,
I used a latex house paint.
With a brush apply paint to the lower third portion.
4. Immediately spritz water lightly.
5. Once it runs, take a paper towel and wipe off runs up to horizon line, leaving a jagged edge.
Clean up excess paint with a wet wipe.

Have a fantastic weekend!
My new blog should be up & running by Monday.
I can’t wait for all of you to see:).Sharing At

  5. Such a clever idea, I love it. Great tutorial too. I would love for you to link to my Inspire Me Tuesday party that is ongoing. Hugs, Marty

  6. Love this idea! Did you use a plastic pot?? I’m wondering what type of material is best for this project. Can’t wait to try it!

    1. Hi Jenny,
      Thank you! I used a cement pot, the more texture the better, but I think any material would work:). Hope this helps! Have a great week.

  7. I hope I am not repeating a question that has already been asked. What two paint colors did you use? Btw I love your blog!!! I’m using so many of your DIY ideas for my home. What I really wish is that you could come and be my personal interior designer(free of charge of course)! Lol:)

    1. Hi Brooke,
      Thank you so much, that make me happy knowing you are using some of my ideas:). It was a cream spay paint and BM charcoal for the bottom. Hope this helps. Have a great day! Jen

  8. When you say BM house paint, do you mean outdoor paint for exterior painting or just indoor house paint for wall? Maybe it would not matter as long as it’s latex?.

    1. Hi Karen,
      Sorry, just regular latex paint for interior. Have a great day! Jen

  9. I know I already commented on this post but I feel the need to say it again. This idea is awesome and It turned out great.
