Hey there, it me, that girl katie, I decided to do this b/c I am going to paint a chevron pattern on a rug and wanted a trial run on something. My house was in the need of some planters and I thought this would be a cute way to spice up a regular inexpensive pot while adding a fun pattern to our deck all while building my confidence to embark on the rug.
1. Buy pot & supplies 2. I had to do a template on paper so I could visualize the pattern 3. I chalked off dots every 2 inches apart 4. Then connected the dots with the pattern & taped it off â€“ the 1st row is the hardest and most frustrating. 2nd row gets a little easier and then you get in a groove. It takes longer than it looks. 5. Spray paint â€“ I did 2 coats. 6. Take off tape 7. Finish off with a plant & a â€œYeehaw, I did itâ€ feeling.
Tips- you might often think this is too complicated but push through it. It doesnâ€™t have to be perfect, clearly mine isnâ€™t.
Also, don't be shocked if you think about Charlie Brown most of the time while doing this project.
Supplies- 1. Pot 2. Spray paint 3. Tape 4. Chalk 5. Razor 6. Template 7. Plant & potting soil
Total Cost (minus time of course) = $220.00
I purchased plants that were each $44.00 but the catch is I can plant them in my yard before winter so I can reuse them again next summer if I choose.
And if you have kids this project took me a few nap times to complete.
