I have an old Jade plant or Friendship Tree, Crassula ovata. It has been in our family for over a decade. This winter it took a big hit when we had an unexpected snow storm. We were out of town at the time and were unable to move it to a protected area. It is in need of a
little, okay a lot of TLC. My poor plant used to look like the “COOL” plant on the block and sadly now is “LOL”. Looking on the bright side, it has a good root ball and they are hardy plants. With a little tending loving care I am hopeful that it will bounce back in no time.
My Supply List: (This project did not cost me anything because I used left over paint and supplies I already had on hand. BONUS!)
- medium terracotta pot with spiral design
- off white – cream semi-gloss water based paint left over from painting the office & utility room.
- Krylon Gold Foil Metallic spray paint
- foam brush and inexpensive detailing brushes
- sealer (optional) Any spray sealer will do. I happen to LOVE Varathane Wood Floor Finish. I bought it for my floor projects but now use it on everything!
I sprayed a small amount of the metallic gold paint in a tray so that I could brush it on. This paint has an oil base to it so cleaning the bush is difficult. I would recommend using inexpensive disposable brushes for this project.
To document the transformation of My Jade Plant-Panted Terracotta Pot Makeover I added a year stamp. I will be adding updated photos from time to time to record our progress.
