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!
What do you think of the aged look of my whitewashed pots?
Did you see my #outdoorextravaganza project from week one – my DIY outdoor floral hanging mason jars that I hung from our patio umbrella?
I love hanging decorative touches in our outdoor spaces! These hanging mason jars can also hold battery operated tea lights too to add some romantic lighting at night!
