My distressed painted flower pot DIY

Remember a few weeks ago when I was in the process of painting my flower pots and I posted the list of my top 10 DIY painted flower pot ideas? Well, I did finish them and I LOVE how they turned out!

Here's a quick little DIY on how to paint flowerpots so they look distressed:

These distressed pots were super simple to make and I LOVE the results!

1. Start with clean, dry pots

2. Spray lightly with Krylon Make it Stone spray paint and wait for it to dry.

3. Paint with your choice of acrylic paints. I used a combination of Martha Stewart's Wedding Cake, Blue Sky, and Cloud and I just dabbed all three colors on the pot with no real rhyme or reason.

4. Once the acrylic paint is dry, take a course grit sandpaper and rub some of the paint off!
