{Porch Redo} Project 3 – Spray Painted Pots

I truly think spray paint is magical.  It can turn old items into brand new treasures.  I decided to put a little magic (aka spray paint) on to my old pots to give them a new life.  I went with a gray color on my larger pots and a yellow/green color on my smaller pots.  I wanted the smaller pots to add a pop of color to my porch.  Plus, the color matched my pillows. :)

With my pots painted, I was FINALLY able to plant my summer flowers.  I usually have my flowers planted by Memorial Day.  Needless to say, I was a bit late this year.  I can’t wait for my flowers to get nice and big and fill in!

Have you ever painted planters or outdoor furniture?  If so, what color did you do?

- Spray paint (I used Krylon Fusion – Ivy Leaf and RUST-OLEUM Painter’s Touch 2x – Dark Gray Gloss)

- Tarp

- Plastic pots

- Rag

Wipe off all of your pots with a rag to remove any dirt.  Lay out your tarp.  I put a box under my tarp to lift my pots up so I could spray them better.   Start spraying in even strokes.  Let your pots dry and repeat with your other pots.  Add a second coat of paint if need be.Spray Painted Pots :: www.happinessiscreating.com{Photo credit: Top Left – True Value}

    The difference between spray-paint and naked is SO intense. I think I’m just going to have to branch out and try this!
