I decided I wanted a pot that went with my kitchen, of course. I wanted one with black and cream. I bought a terra cotta pot, black and buttercream acrylic paint and a stencil. This project was actually quite simple and didn't take too long at all. The paint dries really fast. The longest part was painting the stencil. Since I was painting cream over black I painted two coats. I probably could have used three but I have two kids screaming to play so I stopped at two. :) I'm not the best painter but I'm not looking for perfection. After the paint dried I sprayed the pot with a clear coat for protection.
I turned the pot upside down to paint
I traced the stencil with a pencil then painted.
New pot with plant!
