Distressed Mossy Pots 

Painted Flower Pots #flowerpots #distressedpaint #flowers

Distressed Mossy Pots are an easy and fab upgrade. If you have some extra terra cotta flower pots, you can transform them in no time. Each spring it seems like I get a bunch of pots as I plant stuff outside… and I never want to toss them out! There are just too many great things you can do with them. Here’s my new favorite.
