Whitewashed Terra Cotta Pots and Painted Mason Jars for Spring

DIY Whitewashed Pots in minutes by Vintage Bette using Dover White Wash by CeCe Caldwell's Paints

I am ready to start playing in the dirt.  I love gardening and being outside and I am really really ready to start on my gardens and yard but here in Colorado Springs we are still experiencing snow and freezing temperatures overnight.  I am pretty sure, though, that Tuesday was the last snow...pretty sure.  And I am pretty sure that we won't have any more hard freezes so I am allowing myself to sort of get ready for spring a little!  Just a little!

I upgraded these little terra cotta pots I bought at our Dollar Tree (and a couple I found in the garage) the other day.  This project only required 3 things and took me a total of 15 minutes!  You will need:  

Dover White Wash Chalk + Clay Paints by CeCe Caldwell's for upgrading Terra Cotta PotsTerra Cotta Pots are super easy to upgrade with Paint by CeCe Caldwell's Chalk + Clay Paints

Simply brush on a coat of Dover Whitewash.  This was one coat.  If you want the whitewash to be lighter dilute it with water but I took it straight from the can (after stirring, of course) and it was the look I wanted.  Easy peasy.  If you want them to last forever you can spray them with a sealer or paint on some Endurance by CeCe Caldwell's but I think it looks great as they start to fade and I can always repaint them next year if needed...a different color, even, if I am bored with the whitewash!

I also painted up some Mason Jars in some spring colors and bought some lovely tulips to cheer myself up.  This is a slightly more involved project and you can read about how to paint Mason Jars for any occasion in my post about the Valentine's Day Mason Jars
