Chalkboard Painted PotsHerb PotsHere is a great project idea that I came up with for a possible Mother’s Day gift, but would also be cute as a birthday gift or housewarming gift. And of course, you can simply make these DIY herb pots as a gift to yourself! Painting regular old terracotta pots with chalkboard paint is a fun and simple activity that will help you get your garden organized and ready for planting season. You all know I am a big fan of the chalkboard look, so when I saw the stack of chalkboard planters at west elm. . . I saw a perfect opportunity for a DIY project. I love that chalkboard paint is not only a great look, but is also so functional! You can easily write whatever plant you are planning to place in that pot, and changing plants just means erasing and re-writing your label. Simple! 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 the DIY herb pots are dry and the herbs planted in their new, roomier homes, marking their names with chalk was very delightful. Enjoy! ~ Lia
