I bought a whole bunch of new paints a few weeks ago and since then nothing has been safe from my painter's brush. My latest project involved sprucing up a few tiny terracotta pots. All you need for this DIY is some pots and paints and you're pretty much good to go. Before painting the pots I coated the rims with gesso to prevent colour from soaking into the terracotta. I also wrapped masking tape underneath the rims to ensure a clean finish. I chose to plant succulents (borrowed/stolen from my mum's garden) but I also like the idea of planting herbs for an indoor kitchen garden. This is a seriously simple DIY but works wonders for livening up a space.
