Painted pot from my Marie Antoinette bedroom.


This picture is from the Graphic Fairy HERE...Love this!

First, i painted a terra cotta pot with white paint, 2 coats...The kids helped.





Then, i printed the picture and cuted it to fit my pot..



I mod podged the pot where i wanted the picture, applied the picture. I did 2 pictures, one on each sides.





When dry, i applied a coat of brown paint and wiped it right away to Antique the pot.


I love this!




Perfect to place the plants from the store...I usually put a small plate under the pot to catch extra water. I get them at the Thrift store but...The crazy little hands broke them all...
