It’s best to use wall paint or acrylic paint on water basis. Primer is probably going to peel. Proceed as follows:

  1. Start by cleaning the pots and dry them well.
  2. Then place newspapers on the ground so you can’t make a mess.
  3. Sand the pots with thick sandpaper.
  4. Clean the pots with a damp cloth, and let them dry again.
  5. Apply the paint with a large brush. You’ll probably need two layers. Finally, let them dry well and place them in your home!
