    1. Clean the surface with soap and water. Let surface dry thoroughly before painting.
    2. Use 1" flat brush to paint the base in the same colors chosen for game pieces (shown: Deep Buttercup and Sweet Pea).Keep applying paint until porous surface absorbs paint and becomes opaque, do not apply multiple coats with dry time between coats as this may cause streaking.
    3. Instruction #2
    4. Use same brush to paint the top (which was actually the bottom of the original planter), a neutral color (shown: Grey Skies) so the game pieces and tic tac toe grid will show up better.
    5. Instruction #3
    6. Use a ruler to determine the center of the game playing surface. Draw a small X in the center, which can easily be erased or painted over. Use the ruler to draw the grid.
