This past weekend was beautiful here in New England and it was a perfect time to get the planters out of the shed and cleaned up. I have so many mis-matched planters I decided to give them a new look with some paint. Kate at Centsational Girl did a great post last week on “dipped” painted items and I decided to try the technique on a bunch of my old planters. The dipped trend is simply a two toned look. She has some great inspiration pictures, so be sure to check it out.
I used painters tape to mark where I wanted the colors to stop and start.
This entire project took about 30 minutes. Quick and easy!
Painted pottery planters can quickly change the look of a space. Bright bold vibrant colors or more subdued neutral colors, either way, your space will look beautiful. The paint colors that I used here are Benjamin Moore’s “decorators white” and Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint “french linen”. What planters do you have hanging around your house you could paint? I am working on sprucing up our foyer where these lovely’s will live so I hope to have before and after photo’s to share with you soon.
