Upgrade your terracotta pots with this simple and inexpensive project that can be completed in an afternoon. The finished result is a stylish upgrade to basic pots that lets you label your plants for easy identification.

I started with 4" Terra Cotta pots and saucers from my local hardware store, Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint $14 (also available in spray paint form if you want a smoother finish) and herbs from my local farmers market.

Make sure you clean off any surface dirt and remove any residue left from the label then allow the pots to dry thoroughly so the paint can adhere to your surface. Apply a couple of thin even coats to the pot and saucer (don't forget the inside rim) to create an opaque look then allow paint to dry according to the product's instructions. Once it's finished you can label and repot your plant.
