DIY Chevron Pots

DIY Chevron Pots

Day two of our Drab to Fab front door makeover continues today with DIY Chevron Pots! 

Our small pots looked ridiculous and I was ready for a change up . . . something fun for the summer! Here’s the kicker, have you seen the prices of planters & pots? $$$. No thank you.

I spotted these contemporary pots in the 
Wal Mart Garden section for $21.96 each. Sold to Moi!


Painted Pink!

To make the chevron pattern I downloaded this Printable Template from Next, I cut out the chevron designs and traced them onto a large piece of painters tape that I made by layering painters tape.

Next, I cut out the traced chevron pattern on the painters tape. 

Next, I added the chevron painters tape template to the pink pots. 
You can see the variety of Chevron sizes 
(the printable template has 4 options and I used them all).

Once the pots were painted, I felt they looked a little bit too much like a 
Mexican Restaurant . . . maybe I was craving chips & salsa . . . who knows . . .  bottom line: the “fiesta” pots needed to be toned down. 

I painted over most of the Chevron stripe and love how they turned out 
 - - just a splash of Chevron detailing!

 a lil reminder of the BEFORE


In the words of my mother, "Now that's a shot in the arm!"
