I rarely paint myself anything but just HAD to paint some terra pots for myself to enjoy this summer. Here is the result. They were really fun to paint and since then I have painted four more large ones to give to my sisters, sister-in-law and a friend. I painted them the personalized one with the initial. I tried different colors with the black, two are melon, one is a turquoise blue and I painted another pistachio one like mine. I am just in love with the pistachio color this year...such happy colors!
