PAINTED METAL PLANTER

I see these little galvanized metal planters everywhere....JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, thrift stores and garden shops.  But, usually they are plain, maybe a little too plain looking.  I decided to cute one up a little.

This was a simple project.  I taped off my planter so that I could paint a single stripe on the center.
 I have a can of Krylon paint in a delicious Pistachio color.  Perfect for springtime.  
I also have a roll of flowery fabric lace.  I'm not sure what it is, but it's a little stretchy.  It came in a bag of lace and ribbon I got from my friend Loy at  Grandma Loy's Kitchen when she visited me here at the farm last year.  Again, perfect for springtime!
I wrapped it around the center stripe that I painted and attached it with a few glue dots.  My little potted shamrock that I got for St. Patrick's Day fit perfectly inside it.
 All springified and I can take that flowery lace off if I want a different look later on.  You know me.....I will.
Enjoy your day and enjoy your spring!

  23. That is a really good idea! I love the color. I'm looking into doing/buying something like this for my wife. She's a big gardener and mentioned she wanted tall metal planters to hang from the backyard fence. I think she'd love something like this!
