My current home décor obsession is succulents. They add some green to your home and are low-maintenance all year round. You will be surprised how much you can liven up your windowsill or tabletop with a colorful piece of nature. I decided to add a pop of color to the terracotta pots by simply adding a little bit of paint. Succulents are all the rage right now and there’s nothing better than adding a colorful pot to the mix!

Directions

Step 1 — Using the foam brush, apply acrylic paint to the terracotta pots. (Make sure to paint the inside of the rim at the top of the pot as well.) After letting the first layer dry, apply a second layer.

Step 2 — After the paint dries, apply painter’s tape about a third of the way up from the bottom of the pot. Cover the top portion of the pot with painter’s tape as well. Spray paint the bottom of the pot with gold spray paint. If your pots have saucers, spray paint those as well.

Step 3 — Let the spray paint dry for at least an hour before putting your plants in the pots.
