There are already several versions of this project on instructables. My wife saw them and wanted me to make her one, so this is my version of how I put the "Flower Tower of Pots" together. This is my very first instructable, so please bear with me as I struggle through this!
Step 1: Gathering the pots
I started out with six regular sized flower pots, one large flower pot, and one catch pan for the large pot. I would highly recommend doing some light sanding on any of the rough areas on the pots. I didn't do this and regretted it later as I wanted a glossy surface, however, some of the rough areas came out dull.
Step 2: Base coat of white paint
Paint all the pots high gloss white. You can see in this photo, that I should have realized the rough spots weren't going to give me a high gloss finish. So, once again, I suggest you go over those with some sandpaper prior to painting them white. Allow plenty of time for this paint to dry.
Step 3: Making the polka dots
I used some large 2 inch circle labels and applied them randomly all over the pots. Make certain you smooth out the label "dots" onto the surface of the pots.
Step 4: Painting each pot
I then painted each pot it's own unique color. I applied several coats of paint allowing the pots to dry in between each coat. I painted both the outside and the inside of the pots. Painting over the label circle dots as I went.
Step 5: The polka dots come alive
Once I applied several liberal coats of paint to the pots, I'd remove the stick on labels to reveal nice large white polka dots on each pot.
