Aged and distressed terra cotta pots have a romantic appeal, but sometimes I'm just too impatient to sit around and wait for the weather to do its thing. And so is Whitney at The Curtis Casa. She discovered a simple way to recreate that weathered look with something we all have around the house!
Making a thin paste of baking powder and water, Whitney painted on a faux finish that mimics aged terra cotta. I'm not sure this kind of effect would work well outside, as rain or moisture might wash away the "paint," but it looks good inside and is easy to touch up when needed.
Check out the project at The Curtis Casa.
