I dragged out my spray paint booth to give our mismatched flower pots a fresh look for summer.
|I know... you want one too!|
Clearly I didn't plan to paint our flower pots when I put annuals in this big planter a month ago!
Our flowers had to spend an afternoon covered up with a garbage bag.
But everything worked out ok, and I think the planter looks very sharp!
I've had this large terra cotta pot in my garage for years.
Now it's holding my tomato plant. I even have tomatoes!
Every year we buy hanging baskets from the garden center and every year the plastic pots are different colors and shapes. We have quite a collection.
I removed the hanging apparatus, wiped them down and spray painted a few of these plastic pots as well.
I didn't prime anything I painted- I barely cleaned off the cobwebs- and I have no idea how long the paint finish will last, but I'm really pleased with how they look right now.
This green plastic pot won't make it through another summer- there's a hole in the back...
...but it looks better black, too. I wish my flowers looked a little healthier. I'm hoping they'll fill in and hide the green rim.
I bought some double bloom pink impatiens that needed to be re-potted, so I bought a few of these little cheapy guys at the dollar store.
I spray painted them gloss white and hot glued on some cute lady bug buttons I found at Michaels.
Again, I don't know what is going on with my flowers- they look a little sick.
If they don't start looking prettier soon, I'm going to spray paint them as well!
I really want to show you how my deck looks, so I'm working on that post next.
