As I was planning this year’s fiesta tablescape, I was in search of a uniform table centerpiece concept that would add to, not detract from the colorful plates and chargers selected for the design. While I love the look and feel of terra cotta planters, I wanted to dull down the coloring, and this DIY whitewash technique was just the trick. We have outlined everything you need below, along with instructions and a quick video so that you can replicate this look below!
While we used these terra cotta pots as a centerpiece design in our modern fiesta tablescape, they would also be perfect for a farmhouse table, garden party or simply for your porch area with a variety of potted florals, cacti or succulents. You will LOVE how simple the process is; just follow our outline below to create your own variety of whitewashed terra cotta pots.
4. Repeat this paint and wipe away process to the inside portion of the terra cotta pot, at least as deep as your potted soil will reach, for a consistent end visual result.
This entire DIY process can be completed in a matter of minutes, and once your painted surface has dried, simply plant your chosen flowers, succulents or cacti for a unique, uniform centerpiece or area within your garden.
