I made these painted pots for our DIY herb ‘bar’ so that we can have delicious fresh herbs for our summer drinks and ice teas!
I grouped 4 herbs: rosemary, mojito mint, lemon grass and spearmint plants in my DIY white washed pots onto a side table where we sit outdoors so that we can add a touch of herbal flavour to our summer sippers and cocktails – YUM!

How to Make DIY White Washed Terra Cotta Pots:
Dab bristles of paint brush lightly into white mineral paint. Wipe off most of the paint onto a paper towel so that your brush is almost dry.
In a cross hatch motion apply paint to outside of pot and onto pot base. Continue until pot is completely white washed.
That’s it! One step!
