Quick DIY project: Give instant glam to a tired old terracotta pot


A quick upcycling project to transform an old terracotta plant pot.

Clean the pot with a mix of soapy water and bleach to remove any moss, mould and dirt. Allow to dry thoroughly, then coat with Resene Terracotta Sealer inside and out.

When dry, apply two coats of your favourite paint colour (certain paints may need a primer – look to the manufacturer’s instructions).

We used Resene Non-Skid Deck & Paint in Traffic to give the finish a textured look. That’s it!
