This poor planter was on it’s last leg…well actually it was decapitated from it’s bottom completely and kicked to the curb.
No worries. I still grabbed it and that
b*tch (oops sorry I usually don’t have a potty mouth) that baby was heavy! After my backbreaking trip I was sure to soak in a hot bubble bath.
Did you happen to notice it still had soil and plants in it?
Here it is after one week at my home:
Anyways, this was made of cement and have you priced cement planters? I have and they are not cheap. Here are some that I found at the Orange Store and guess what, these are just the faux resin ones, not the cement prices!
$49.95 (not cement)
Although it wouldn’t bother me to have a faux planter, I love the idea of the cement ones. I moved on down a few rows to the paint section and found some stone spray. I have never used this before and thought it would be fun to give it a try.
I chose the darker stone color.
Rust-oleum American Accents Stone
$8.98 per can
Here is the planter before I painted it. It props up perfectly in the corner of my fence and garage so now it looks all in tact.
Plants growing well at three weeks:
It only took one can of paint to cover it and I love the results!
Looks new again and for $8.98 you can’t beat that!
Even the plants are happy, still growing strong at 5 weeks with some new
colorful flower friends.
Finally this week at 6 weeks since I found my new treasure, the weekend of our big luau party,
sitting pretty next to the iron bench I found (along with 5 others) HERE!
I am very pleased.
The plants in the planter are:
Bouganvilla (cannot wait to see the blooms!)
The two others are unknown.
Please help me to figure out the other plant names! I have no idea!
I would love to hear from you.
P.S. Remember these other planters I found and painted Red? ( I wrote about it HERE) I still love the red but maybe eventually I will paint them in stone as well.
Don’t forget to comment about the plants – I’m curious!
