Bring Spring Inside During Winter



Who Wants Spring In Winter?  We do!

Are you tired of Winters harsh weather yet?  Better not be because it just started.  We have many more months of dreaming about our potted flowers & patio planters before they can come to life.  So, in the mean time we have a quick & easy project that will bring a touch of Spring indoors.

Get a few terracotta garden planters.  Of course we love our because they are not only available in many sizes but the clay is a stunning product that imports to us from Italy.  Select a few sizes that will work great for planting indoor herbs.  The look of one size of pot all lined up in the kitchen window is also very popular and pleasing!

Make sure the pots are clean and dry before painting.  Coat each pot with white paint and let dry completely.  Then using grit paper rub the areas on the pottery where you want the terracotta to show through. This gives the pots the distressed look we are going for.  Rub the lips, the sides and around the base to create an interesting pot.

Now fill with potting soil and herbs purchased at your local nursery or garden center.  Not only are these lovely but they smell so nice.  Now you have your own European Distressed looking flowerpots but you have added a touch of Spring to your indoors.
