potted plant makeover

potted plant makeover

I was going to make a margherita pizza for dinner the other night, and had to run out to grab fresh basil leaves
the local market i stopped at carried packaged basil for almost 4 dollars or potted basil for 3 dollars.
i grabbed the little plant, some herb Gouda, a few tomatos then quickly ran out the door (recipe coming)
yes i paid first, geesh.

i am not going lie, i was a little excited to bring this basil plant home
i have always wanted my own herb garden, and the one i tried starting from seeds was a #fail

the little pot the plant came in was cheap looking and a little too small
i searched around my garage for a little bigger pot and a can of white spray paint

pot before
pot after

i ended up spraying two coats of white paint on the pot
while the pot was drying i was raided my craft supplies from Consumer Crafts

i did not want  anything permanent on the pot because i change my style often
i thought using the washi tape would give the right amount of color without being permanent

one of my favorite details is the black and white polka dot washi tape in the inside of the pot!
i added the little clothespin with the word basil on it for the finishing touch
i have one more matching pot in my garage that i can not wait to decorate
