A project in progress

Over the weekend, I decided to paint mini terra cotta pots with our address numbers on the front. We don't have apartment numbers on our front door so I thought I could use these in its place.

I first painted the pots with a white spray paint. Then I placed sticker address numbers to the front (after they had dried of course).

Then I sprayed the pots with a black spray paint- spraying over the numbers as well.

Then I peeled the numbers away once they were dry. And this is what was revealed.

The black bled through a little in some spots. My husband mentioned (of course after the fact) that I should have peeled the numbers when the paint was a little tacky and not fully dry. So I guess I'll try that next time.

I think I might just touch up the letters with some white paint and call it a day. When I get a chance, I want to pick up some succulents to put in the pots.
