DIY golden plant pot

I once again ended up buying few new plants (crazy I know) and of course pots for them. I did buy few new ones, but I had also one old one, just in little boring colour. In general I don’t like buying always new things, and for this reason, I try to give new life to the old ones with a little makeover when possible. I transformed my old pot into golden beauty, and now it fits perfectly with my other pots, which are all mainly black or white.


For this easy DIY project all you need is some paint, a brush and old pot. I used acrylic paint as I had some left from my painting projects (I have used the same paint for these invitations and painting). I painted the pot once with very relaxed brush strokes so that I could create lively texture. I left the pot to dry for few hours and after it was ready for use. Super simple isn’t it? And of course, you can use any paint you want, and mix colours. I was also planning some stripes, or “dipped” effect for some of my other pots, but let’s see what I end up doing with them.


The plant, by the way,  is Calathea (Nukkumaija in Finnish). Calathea should be easy to take care of, and I especially love the different shades of green it has. I also like the contrast of bright green and gold, looks so fresh!




Have a wonderful weekend!
