DIY: PAINTED MID-CENTURY POTS
I’m sure you’ve seen all of the incredible painted pots circulating on Pinterest and have probably pinned quite a few. Well I'm going to show you how to paint your own!
This is my first attempt, so bear with me:)
First I have to think of what my design will be.
Second, I’ll wrap my measuring tape around the circumference of the top of the pot and mark an evenly spaced number of dots along the edge.
Third, I’ll wrap the measuring tape around again about half way down and measure and mark alternating dots. I’m free-handing the rest, making a pencil outline for my design. But I think on my next attempt, a stencil might be a little easier.
Next is the paint. Probably the trickiest part.
If you mess up, there’s no eraser:)
Then you want to paint along your pencil lines, barely going over the edge if you can and keep the lines straight, just so you don’t leave pencil marks like I did.
The last, final and probably most important step is to seal the outside AND the inside! I didn’t know this, and once I put soil in the pot and watered it, it seeped through the pot and turned my paint brown. A bit of a bummer, so don’t do what I did!
Being that this is my first try at this, I’m pretty happy with how these came out.
As long as you don’t get up too close they look pretty good:)
I’ll do better next time😂

11:11. So what does it mean anyway? Well, for what seems like forever now, I've been seeing 11:11 pretty much on every day. And yes, I've known that it's a good omen and that if you see it, it’s a sign from the Universe that you’re on the right path. So, naturally, I became obsessed. However, I never knew all of the magical hidden meanings behind this auspicious number.
