Nickel Brushed Spray Painted Pots


It was a great day here today in Pa. the sun actually was shining for a while and it felt so good, so I decided to spray paint a little something like probably most of us were doing right?
I had bought these two plastic pots at the Dollar Tree a couple weeks ago to be ready for when the stores started selling flowers for spring.

Sunday I was looking thur the Target section in the Sunday paper when I saw the ad for these zinc planters, I loved them but not the price of them! Then I remembered I had bought a can of Krylon Nickle spraypaint for about $4.00 because I figured I could always use it for something and thought why not try it on those DT planters, so I did.

I didn’t use the primer because it wouldn’t spray and I just wasn’t in the mood to fool with it.

Here is how they turned out, I think spraying them really brought out the design on them!

I may do another couple coats on them but for now they are fine and I’m sure any other color spray paint would be just as nice, maybe I’ll look for a zinc one:0

I’ll be joining these parties for Tuesdays!

I love this idea. I have a hard time spending $$$$ on outside decor with our storms and wind things are easily knocked over. What a great way to dress up the plastic planters! Thanks so much for linking up to Terrific Under Ten!

They look great, Rondell. I love to spray paint anything that isn't moving....and some things that are!;>) I guess I didn't realize that you were in PA. I grew up in Bradford County. Where are you? xxoo Diana

I have so many of those plastic pots...cheap but not so pretty on the eyes. I've been wanting to spray paint them and I think you've finally convinced me to just do it. Thanks!
