One of my goals for the summer is to work my way through my Pinterest board of inspiring DIYS. I loved the look of these colour-block terra cotta pots from abeautifulmess.com and after finding the perfect plants at the garden centre I figured I would give it a go.
I followed the original how-to more or less, making a couple of changes and using my own colour scheme (I’m loving purple and grey at the moment!).
Unlike the original poster, I didn’t trust myself to paint a straight line and my original plan to use masking tape failed due to the curve of the pots. Instead, I used an elastic band stretched around the pot to create an almost-perfectly straight line.
I’m now determined to try my best to keep these plants alive. Wish me luck!
