Stenciling an Inexpensive Farmhouse Planter

This plain little planter was from the dollar section
at Target and is now adorable.

This $3 plain grey ceramic planter just needed a little updating to become fabulous. 

I started out by giving it a quick white wash letting a little of the original grey color come through. I white washed the planter with white chalky paint

I used the Farm Fresh Milk stencil from Vintage Sign Stencils.

When the paint dried I wrapped the stencil around the pot and using a foam pouncer stenciled part of the stencil onto the planter.

When the lettering was dry I used a fine grit sandpaper to distress the finish. 

It was finished in no time and I dropped in one of my favorite faux plants from IKEA.

Can you even tell which of these plants is real? (I will give you a hint, it's the jade plant in the background.)

    1. Yep 3 bucks! That's the best part :) My best advice would be to use spray adhesive on the back of your stencil especially if you are new at it. It keeps the stencil from shifting. Have fun and stencil everything Lori!
