I recently finished renovating my sister’s blue and white kitchen. And I’ve gotten questions about the accent pottery I used. So, read on for three budget-friendly ways to get a blue and white pottery!
3 Budget-Friendly Ways to Get a Blue and White Pottery Look
If you’ve been following along, you know that I just finished my sister’s blue and white kitchen. Since we had some delays and road blocks, it ended up taking longer than I had planned. But I’m so glad that we’re finally finished and she has a pretty place to cook now!
One of the elements I love from the kitchen are the accent pieces, like pottery, plates and knick knacks. Since blue and white accent pieces can be really expensive, I wanted to find a way to include them without spending too much.
And you better believe I have not one but three great ways you can include them get them for cheap!
Option 1: Decopage a Terra Cotta Pot
So, this one is super easy! Here’s what you’ll need:
First, start off by painting the pot white with the chalk paint. Then let it dry completely.
Next use a coat of Mod Podge to decoupage the printed napkin onto the pot.
Make sure to not use too much Modge Podge or else the napkin might start coming a part!
It’s a super easy and fast project and you get the look of blue and white pottery on a budget! And you’d never guess that the pot only cost a few dollars, right?!
1 Bronson Pinchot / 2 Shabby Chic / 3 Lily White/Blue / 4 Damask / 5 Roseanne Beck / 6 Caspari / 7 Covent Garden / 8 Flowers / 9 China Blue
If you want to give it a try, I rounded up some pretty blue and white napkins for you! How pretty is #7 with the birds? But honestly, I think it would be so pretty to do a mix of patterns on different pots!
Option 2: Hit the Thrift Store!
My next tip would be to hit up the thrift shop! You’ll be surprised at the budget blue and white pottery you can find. The faux flowers on the dining table are a $6 score! Isn’t the pottery bowl they’re in beautiful?!
The ceramic cat tea pot was $3 from the Goodwill. And the bowl full of dahlias was $1. Go down the tchotchke aisle and you’ll be surprised at what you can find!
Another hot tip would be to bring your kids with you when you go! Don found the cat, and he’s always spotting things I wouldn’t see.
Option 3: Hang Up Blue and White Plates
1 Picnic or Dinner Plates / 2 YALONG / 3 Gingham Checkered / 4 ARC / 5 Cottage Plate /
6 Indigo Cotton / 7 Antique Scroll / 8 Blue Italian / 9 Caspari
Lastly, hanging up blue and white plates would be another great option. I didn’t do this in the kitchen, but it would be SO cute!
You can find the plates from the thrift store (like the ones I found on the dining table), OR Amazon sells amazing blue and white paper and melamine plates. These are perfect for decor and don’t break the bank.
If you’re in the market for them, I rounded up 9 plate options for you to choose from! I especially love #8, and it’s actually a paper plate but you wouldn’t guess it. You never know what beautiful decor you can put together on a small budget for your home!
