I gasped in horror when I saw the prices!! They ranged from $69.99-169.99. No way, no how!! After snaking through row after row of out of budget metal planters, I happened upon some PLASTIC planters. Thankfully, they were $7.99 and $39.99!! The plastic planters had great decorative touches and I knew the finish I wanted was just a can of spray paint away!!
Here is the before:
I used RustOleum's Universal Hammered Spray Paint. It was quick, cheap and easy! This is the 12" plastic planter. It contains my Rosemary Tree and a few dwarf marigolds I threw in for color.
Here is a picture of the "Hammered Metal" finish.
2 plastic planters= $52 (including tax)
Dirt= Straight outta the garden!
Rosemary Tree= A lovely gift from a friend
Dwarf Marigolds= $1 for 6
Ornamental Evergreen= $29
1 can of RustOleum's Hammered Spray Paint= $8.50 (including tax)
Alyssium to border the Evergreen= $2 for 6
Happy Planting My friends!!
