I have to admit that decorating pots isn't exactly my forte. Often I would be happy to just leave a board or two of pots undecorated. I've always regretted the times I've followed through with that notion though.
A well executed decoration can certainly make a good pot even better, however it seems like it's quite a bit easier to wreck a good pot with a poor decoration. I've certainly wrecked quite a few pots with poorly thought out decoration.
Often I just stick with safe tried and true decorations on pots that I like. Or leave the best pots without decoration and let them stand on their own.
The above I guess is all just in explanation as to why I celebrate when I succeed, in at least not spoiling a good pot with a decoration:
