Create a modern indoor garden with terracotta pots

Dress up your windowsill with a variety of plants (or herbs!) in painted pots.

Bring your windowsill to life with hand-painted terracotta flowerpots. Simply brush a thin layer of paint around the tops of empty pots and let it dry. We planted ours with hardy, sculptural succulents, but any plants work. For a perfect hostess gift choose herbs like basil and oregano. Bonus: It’s a great way to use up leftover paint.
