So far this summer, I have been in between consulting jobs which is great to get caught up on house chores. I can’t believe how much gardening I have done, gotten rid of stuff, cleaned gutters, and even re-vented my dryer vent. But, the downside of not consulting is the fact I am not getting paid. With that said, I wanted to bring texture to my living room where I have a “Mother-In-Law” tongue plant that needed transplanting without spending spend a lot of money. Here’s a pic:
I thought the pot could be made more interesting since it’s one of the black pots you find at a gardening store that I obviously needed to transplant the plant into.
I decided to make the black pot more interesting by painting it, and gluing rope on it. I also painted the pot rim gold.
The tools and materials used:
1) Black garden pot (already owned)
2) Paint, paint sponges and brushes (already owned)
3) Rope ($5.94)
4) Glue gun (already owned)
5) Scissors (already owned)
The steps I took:
1) Cleaned surface of the pot
2) Painted pot – the main part first, then the pot rim
3) Glued rope
Below is a picture of the pot:
As I took these pictures, I was unsure of how it turned out. What I did not want was a ‘cheap’ painted pot. Here are a couple of pictures with the plant transplanted into the pot. Also, notice the rope did not hold – I was going to fix it, but thought it was better to leave it alone.
What do you think about the pot? I would love to hear from you!
