Spray Paint Cheap Plastic Planters: Easy Garden Update
Jun 012015
 

Ok, so with the new house, I have a lot of outdoor space… for the first time ever! So I am planting a lot of flowers and fruits and vegetables! I did have a bunch of those cheap plastic planters in a terra-cotta color, but they always looked so… well, cheap! So I found a way to spruce them up a bit and just make them look a little less plastic-y and ugly!

So I just laid the pot upside down on some cardboard in my open garage and got spraying. As usual, spray painting always looks best when it is done with several thin coats, rather than one thick coat. Thicker coats tend to cause drips and drops!
