How To Age A Terra Cotta Pot | Spring Farmhouse Ideas | YouTube Video

Posted by Jami Ray on

 

We put a farmhouse twist on some terra cotta pots and make them look weather worn.

You can use terra cotta pots from any store. We then sand them, you can leave some higher spots to give it variation. 

For paint I used three different DIY paint shades and the paint brush is the 1 1/4 Paint Pixie Brush. First up is Gravel Road. I wet my paint brush so that way it doesn’t lay on too thick and I applied the paint all over. Second, I used DIY Old School. For this layer I just dab the end of the brush onto the pot in random spots like you would a sponge and let it dry. Then the last paint I used is White Swan from DIY Paint and I applied it in a crosshatch dry brush pattern. 

Since the paint is water based, I used a sealer that way if you need to clean it or anything, the paint will not come off. I used the Sweet Pickins Top Coat, but you can also use Liquid Patina by DIY. This sealant will really bring out all the layers and makes the paint durable. Finally, I used DIY Black Wax and a Wax Brush to add more aging and character
