Chalkboard Painted Pots

Chalkboard Painted PotsDIY Chalkboard PotsI hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Along with enjoying a yummy homemade brunch by my daughter, I had a very busy weekend working on home projects. One of the projects was to paint my terracotta pots with chalkboard paint for my herbs. You all know I am a big fan of the chalkboard look right now, so when I saw the stack of chalkboard planters at west elm. . . I saw a perfect DIY project. For the pots, I used the DecoArt Americana chalkboard paint. This paint goes a long way and brushes on smoothly. I used less than a half bottle for my 6 pots and plates. Once dry and the herbs planted in their new, roomier pots, marking their names with chalk was very delightful! Happy Monday ~ Lia

  1. If I weren’t leaving on vacation tonight, I’d be running home to make some of these! Guess I’ll have to wait a couple of weeks. Such a cute idea, especially for herbs. They would even be cute placed around in the garden – I’ve planned several different herbs and flowers that keep away the pests – now they’ll be decorative and useful. Thanks for the idea!

  2. where do you buy chalk board paint?

  3. I love practical things that are also pretty! I’m curious how well these hold up outside. Does the chalk disappear when it rains?

    • They were out in the rain on Monday and did not smear at all. It may depend on the intensity of the rain? Either way I am loving the black pots as terracotta is not in my color scheme. :-)

  4. M’encanten aquestes torretes de pissarra i gran idea lo de posar-hi els noms ,
    Una abraçada.
