Picture of Faux Mosaic; match flowerpots to mosaic wall

A simple paint technique with great result, and lots of possibilities to vary on the theme.

I wanted a flowerpot against the facade of my house, matching the mosaic the previous house owner glued to the wall. As you can see the mosaic tiles are dark blue, and there aren't many blue flowerpots. So I bought a straightforward grey clay-fiber pot and pimped it

Step 1: Preparation

Mixing some outdoor black wallpaint with artists acrylic in blue and green I achieved a nice dark blue color matching the tiles on the facade wall. I did not mix it quite thoroughly, so the paint result doesn't look flat, but shows some variation. Paint a few inches on the inside of the rim as it, may be, can be seen after planting.

 

Very pretty and simple! Nice job!

A perfect match, it's beautiful. For the weeds: use white vinegar, it kills weed and it's done in a minute. I recommend it only for your tiles, not your garden for it will kill your plants too.

Thanks for the tip.
