weathered aqua turquoise planters and jars

Hi, loves.

Happy Wednesday!

I recently came across this photo of some old, chippy, turquoise & aqua pots
and fell in love, declaring that I wanted to recreate the look.
 Using Annie Sloan chalk paint in “Provence” with a dash of “Old White”,

DecoArt’s new “Sea Glass” Acrylic Paint and Patio Paint Clear Sealer,

and my trusty, time-worn Purdy paintbrush, I got to work.

DIY weathered aqua planter pots jars chalk paint outdoor paint freckled laundry

Here is the unedited photo to show you true color accuracy….

I didn’t have enough clay pots laying around
and I’m really trying to use what I have on hand
so I just painted a vintage canning jar.
I have 23 of those.

The already aqua Atlas jar in the back just coordinated so I threw that in the shot too.

To see how I made them, visit The DIY Club.
Believe it or not, there is actually a process to create the look, ya know!
It still cracks me up that there’s a process to making something look like that.

Although I received DecoArt & Rockler products to use, I am only required to show you how I use them at The DIY Club. My thoughts and opinions, when I choose to share them, are always completely honest and entirely my own.

Have a lovely day.

What have you been working on?



  1. You, my dear freckled friend, are a blessing…

    Oh Jami, I saw your newly painted door and I swear my heart skipped a beat! I love that you used Annie Sloan paint for it, too, and the colors you chose are *perfect* for the piece! And those sweet little shoes! If only I had a little girl~ or even KNEW a little girl~ to buy those for! I love the glimpse of the lavender garland, too. And my goodness, your painted pot and canning jar are wonderful! I will definitely be heading over to see how you did this. :)

    I hope you have a beautiful day! :)

    Hugs to you,

    I love that window that you painted and those aqua pots! So pretty, Jami. Your sweet baby shoes are precious hanging on that window. I’m curious how you like the chalk paint. I’ve been toying with ordering some. It is expensive but from what I’ve been reading on blogs it is well worth it? You are a busy gal!

  14. Hi Jamie, The little shoes are adorable and I love the chalk paint on the pots.

thank you for taking a minute to write...
