Flower Pot Makeover with Spray Paint

Last weekend was a long weekend and as such, the traditional flower and vegetable garden planting time. Here’s an easy fix for old, white and dingy plastic flower pots. Mine were pretty bad. Here’s the before. You really can’t tell from the photo but it was looking rather grey and drab.


All I did was a couple of coats of Rustoleum Painter’s Touch spray paint in the colour Key Lime. Be sure to also spray the top portion. No need to paint the entire inside of the pot. This paint bonds to plastic so it was perfect for this project.

Here’s the after. The colour is more lime green than yellow as it appears in the photos:

Pretty Storage Box

My daughter’s done school for the year which means she has much more spare time. She took a plain old storage box (no before picture) and really made it pretty. All you need to do this is a cardboard box (the kind you can find at a dollar or discount store), some spray paint and a bit of lace fabric.

I happened to have this piece of lace from an old skirt.


She wanted to change the original colour of the box so she spray painted the entire thing with a base coat in grey. Lay the fabric over the box and use a complimentary or contrasting colour to spray the material. Once the fabric is removed you have something like this.


It’s so pretty and fits nicely into the decor of her room.
