I love Spring time; changes are in the air, flowers magically bloom, all things brown turn green, birds chirping and the promise of good things to come.
I always know Spring is here when our Bougainvillea and Roses start climbing our arbors adding vibrant pops of color in the yard.
I have always had a love for arbors, they add so much beauty to the garden! The one with the roses my hubby made for me a few years back, it always puts a smile on my face when I see the roses climbing up the sides in full bloom.
In the back yard I plant most of my flowers in pots so I can brighten up the patio. I love pots in all differen’t sizes and colors and I expecially love aged pots. Aging a terra cotta pot is one of the most simple things to do and it adds so much charm.
How to age a terra cotta pots
Grab whatever paint you have on hand, think creamy antique colors, a sponge and wax. The wax will protect against moisture and make the pots more durable.
Mix the paint with a good amount of wax till smooth.
Take a sponge and apply the paint mixture onto the terra-cotta pot leaving certain areas of the pot lightly exposed. I find my pots at the dollar store.
You are left with a gorgeous pot that looks like it has been sitting around for years.
You can always seal the inside of the pots for more protection
