Easy Chalk Paint® and Stencil Idea for your Garden Pots

Easy Chalk Paint® and Stencil Idea for your Garden Pots | Paint + Pattern

Is your summer heating up like ours here in North Carolina? It’s just like a sauna, often made worse by a five o’clock thunderstorm, so Steve and I retreat to our shaded deck as often as possible. Recently I decided to add some pattern out there, but I had nothing handy to paint, so I took a metal planter from a set on our front porch to reuse.

I had painted and stenciled these planters using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan more than two years ago. They have weathered thunderstorms, heat, ice, and snow beautifully, so repeating the process was a no-brainer. Just paint and a stencil! Chalk Paint® sticks like glue on metal plus it requires NO topcoat for outdoor use, so this is a quick, very simple project that you can enjoy with the  kids. I remember those years of attempting to entertain our girls all summer long – quite a challenge.

STEP ONE

With the Versailles Chalk Paint® brush one coat over the raised areas and use a roller to paint the flat surfaces. Let dry.

STEP TWO

Place the stencil in random positions and use different colors. I chose this stencil for a couple of reasons: I like the scale and simplicity of the pattern relative to the size of the planter and it doesn’t require any measuring or precision. It’s especially easy to use for children.

STEP THREE

Using a dry brush, brush some Duck Egg on the top edges of the planter. Lightly sand all over and wipe off the residue. Let dry.
