37 In Summer

Quickly painted summer pots

Quickly painted summer pots 4

Well, the rain in Spain has finally stopped, yehaw! And now the patio decor has resumed and today I’m showing you these quickly painted summer pots I made on the weekend! 
Quickly painted summer pots kreativk.netove terracotta pots and here they are really inexpensive as well, but I think that they do look a little boring, especially when they are brand new and don’t have that weathered terracotta look yet. After seeing lots of beautiful painted pots here &  here, I thought, I needed to paint some myself! So, to make them a bit more colourful for the happy season, I simply painted them with a very bright and happy blue! I’m not a too~much~colour~fan normally, inside my home you find some pastels here and there, more during the spring and summer, but outside I love it bright! So these just look so fresh, especially with the green plants inside [ some  most of them are fake, you know…] 

I painted the pots white before I added the colour.

When all was dry, I grabbed my acrylic paint and got going. I mixed it with white to have different shades of blue and brushed it on the pots, no real plan and no special technique here…just get that colour on them!

    I love these! They will look so great with your new tribal pillows!!! I love the way you blended the blue and the white making each pot unique! I like terra cotta too, but these are much better! And I love the succulents, real or not! It’s hard to tell which is which! I can’t wait to see your patio all put together! I love your style, both inside and out!

    These are so pretty and perfect for summer! I especially love that round pot. The paint on that one just makes me picture sitting on a deck by the pool! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday this week.

    I love the blue you chose Katrin. It is the perfect color for the summertime! I have made half-hearted attempts to get my balcony ready. Let’s see I’ve already killed a few plants…does that count? Maybe I should try your method of the fake plants… it will save me much heartache.

      Mary, lol, buying these fake plants was the Best money I’ve spent, I don’t have to worry about them until I take them down for winter and they look always pretty, even next year again, lol. They do cost a little more than real ones obviously, but hey, all the ones I killed so far were money thrown out the window… except a few that made it… Thanks for the visit!!! 🙂

    These are beautiful! Just a quick question about the function after painting them- does the paint keep the wet from the inside of the terra cotta coming through causing the messy outside I find on my unpainted ones? I’m not the best with indoor plants, either too much watering or not enough! It seems a little better now that I water once a week. Your creativity continues to amaze me. Thank-you!

      Hi Ellen! Thank you so much for visiting! You don’t know how much I appreciate it! 🙂 As for the paint and the wet…so far, so good, I have some real plants, but they are succulents, so they don’t need a lot of water and there’s no problem with the paint. I did have my Christmas tree[with roots] in a painted pot [with the same paint] and it needed water every day and the pot turned out really distressed and old looking after a two weeks or so…I personally really liked the look and didn’t mind that. Now the tree is in the backyard and I’m using the pot for something else… anyways, with little water there shouldn’t be a problem. Hope that helped! Have a great week!!

    Katrin, your opening sentence had me singing a, “My Fair Lady” song. Lol. Anyway, these painted pots are so pretty!! I really need to get some flower pots and do some painting on them. You make these look so gorgeous and I bet they look great outside. Love the bright blue with the white.
