Stylish flower pots can be expensive, but you can easily make some painted terracotta pots suit your style with a little bit of paint.
Since my garden has really gone downhill in the 110 degree weather, I decided to hit up a plant sale for some hardier plants and do up some terracotta pots with acrylic pouring to bring a little bit of life back to the porch.
I really like the color teal as well as jewel tones, so that’s what I went with for these painted terracotta pots. I also tried three different styles of pour, dirty pour, dip, and balloon smash. I wasn’t super thrilled with how the balloon smash turned out, so I went ahead and did some freehand painting on it afterward.
Overall I’m happy with how these painted terracotta pots turned out, and they do indeed spruce up the porch a bit!
