DIY Faux Concrete Planter: Concrete Decor Ideas How to create a faux concrete texture look for any piece of decor & planter

Some decor is simply timeless.

It lasts through fads & trends because it can be used in multiple home styles.

One that I love specifically is concrete textured decor!

Concrete decor is perfect for adding character inside & outside, during any season.

The only problem is that it can be slightly expensive…

That’s why for this weeks Thrifty Style Team Challenge I am making my own concrete textured paint on the cheap ? (check out the other 13 thrifty projects at the end of this post)!

DIY Faux Concrete Planter Supplies:

  • Plaster of Paris
  • White Paint
  • Gray or Black Paint

While I was shopping my moms storage closet (all the good stuff hides in there ?) I found this super cute but chipped vase/urn.

She said I could have it so immediately I started dreaming up what exactly I would do with this little gem.

I thought adding some faux concrete texture would give it a timeless look & add some character.

First I gathered my supplies, some leftover paint, a brush, & something to add texture.

I am going to use Plaster of Paris but you could use actual concrete dust or dirt.

First Layer concrete paint

Next, I mixed a little Plaster of Paris with the white paint & dabbed it all over the vase.

The reason I dabbed the paint & not brushed it on is because I want the texture of the rough surface it will create.

Second Layer concrete paint

I let the first coat dry for about 10 minutes before starting my second mixture.

For the second mixture I added gray paint & even more Plaster of Pairs to the white mixture.

I mixed it all together & dabbed it on the same way.

If you need more texture add more plaster to the mix.
