Easy DIY Metallic Pots

DIY metallic pots on a shelf outside

Earlier this week I shared my outdoor patio refresh with Pier 1. One of my favorite parts about the project was this wonderful new plant station. The shelf is one of the few remaining pieces of furniture from Ohio. When we moved into our new house there was no place for this shelf. I immediately decided to relocate it outside and turn it into a fun place to display plants.

I headed to the 99 Cent store to pick up some terra-cotta pots and took a detour to the local nursery on my way home.

I picked up some pretty portulaca called margarita mix, some blue chalk sticks, and something else (I cannot remember what it’s called).

gold and metallic paints

I sourced my metallic paints and ended up using the gold spray paint and rose gold spray paint.

after spray painting

I sprayed with zero intention and made interesting patterns. The blend of rose gold and gold looked fantastic.

I found other succulents growing in my yard so I scooped those babies up and potted them too.

I’m thrilled with the end results of these pots. I hope I inspire you to get out there and plant some new succulents or cacti this summer.
