Jazz up the Deck

The back deck just lacked some color so I was off to home depot and lowes to pick up a few supplies.I grabbed two clay pots and a few paint supplies.

First task was to paint the pots white. I also sprayed the inside of the pots with Thompson Water Sealer so that the paint on the outside doesn't bubble. I learned this from my favorite blog thisyounghouse after they painted a bunch of pots for their back deck (Click Here for their project).

I then taped off stripes on the pots with masking tape and spray painted the whole pot black.

Remove the tape and....... VOILA. Two beautiful pots that add that touch of color the deck was screaming for.


I love the black and white and the boxwood just pops. They are very Mackenzie Childs without the price tag.
