Today I show you some pretty painted planters that ANYONE can recreate!
Yesterday I shared my “magical oasis retreat” ( -this was one of the comments on Insta, and I LOVED it) bedroom reveal, and I am still in greenery mode. This fun Spring projects/DIY blog hop is hosted by Krista over at The Happy Housie, and while you are going to see so many beautiful, pink, pastel, real springy projects throughout this hop, I am sticking my guns to the fresh and green projects.:-) Oh well. It’s only February, and we only had ONE real gorgeous day ( over 73 degrees), so I am genuinely not feeling the pinks and pastels yet. But this simple and super duper easy project that I am sharing today is for EVERYONE who loves house plants. I feel the need to have greenery in my home. I, to be really honest though, kill many plants and I am learning that I should probably never buy a Fiddle Fig Tree unless it’s fake. I just can’t keep up with it. But I found specific plants that are easy to care for, and still add airy and fresh vibe to the home.
The other day I was searching for planters ( I even asked my audience on Insta, and most people pointed out HomeGoods.)I figured that maybe I could make some on my own that I like. I found a few at HomeGoods too, like that big one on the image below but it’s a hit, or miss and HomeGoods is not too close to me.
Yeah, guys! This is the Oasis Retreat I was told you about earlier haha. See more pictures of this fresh and new bedroom HERE.
But let’s focus on how I made these easily painted planters!
Few things you will need for the project:
- -plastic planters
- -spray paint (if you find while plastic planters, you can skip this step)
- -acrylic paint
My local Home Depot did not have white planters, so I bought three different size plastic planters that I spray painted first with flat white paint. It took maybe 10 minutes.
Then, this time my friends, I didn’t get too artsy. I just went with the flow and drew thin lines on the small planter and thicker lines on the large planter using acrylic paint. On the medium size planter, I splashed some paint on with the brush and painted the upper part of the planter.
Okay! I told you that this is a project that ANYONE can make and it looks pretty decent with my plants displayed in my living room.
Tell me what you think? Yay or nay? I think it was worth my 16 dollars and 15 minutes to make these excellent planters!
