Painting garden pots is fun, and a great way to get designer-looking pot plants without the hefty price tag.

ESTIMATED TIME

2 hours

  • The time taken will depend on how many pots you want to paint and the complexity of the design
  • Allow at least 2 hours between coats.

MATERIALS

Here's what you're going to need:

STEPS

  1. Choose a colour scheme for your pots. Browse colour charts for ideas on colour combinations that match your décor.
  2. Use the sand paper to sand off any peeling paint, then wash down the pot with soapy water removing any dirt or grime.
  3. Prep the pot with Taubmans® 3 in 1 Prep Primer Sealer Undercoat. If you are using the pot for plants that will be watered, ensure the inside of the pot is sealed adequately.
  4. Use your brush to apply an even coat of Taubmans® Sunproof Exterior paint to the pot’s surface. Let it dry for at least 2 hours before applying the second coat.
  5. If you want to add a colour swatch flourish, create a ring or your pattern of choice with masking tape.
  6. Apply two coats of your bright colour and remove the masking tape while it’s still wet. Let the paint dry for at least two hours.
