weathered clay pots.

Took a stab at “aging” some of my clay pots for that weathered terra cotta look. I used this tutorial from The Curtis Casa, which is actually a pretty unique blog I will now follow.

All you need is a mixture of baking powder and water. However, I wanted some “color” in my aging, and so used some turquoise and green and white paints to achieve the exact look. I didn’t measure anything, but it was just a mixture of all these elements until I thought it was just right.

Tip: used a piece of stiff cardboard to rub off some of the paint and baking soda to create texture.

What do you think? Success?

Trying to declutter and reorganize my life. It starts in the living room, and it feels really…good. Decorating tips, anyone? Do I even have a style? I’d like one.
