Simple Painted Terra Cotta Pot

I have been quite busy the last couple of weeks and have not had time to work on any of my projects.  I did have time to tone down one of my favorite terra cotta pots.  I found this pot for $1 and, of course, I loved the galvanized metal trim at the top.





 I was just not crazy about the metal paired with the bold terra cotta pot, so, after taping off the metal trim, I watered down some gray paint and brushed it on the pot.  Then, I stenciled a simple fleur de lis in a darker shade of gray.



I have a list of projects waiting for their turn to be reloved, so I should be back to posting regularly as soon as I can get caught up!

What a cool little pot. I have never seen a terra cotta pot with a galvanized top. Very cool. Great remake!
