Bring Old Plastic Lawn Decor Back To Life

13,846 Views
If you have old, faded plastic planters, plastic lawn chairs, or any plastic yard decor, did you know there is a simple way to revive it? Many folks don't realize that there is special spray paint made specifically for outdoor plastic, that will revive these faded items and make them look like new again. I'm so glad I didn't throw away these wonderful planters! With just a little cleaning and painting, my front porch has a whole new look.
For full, step-by-step instructions, visit my website, We Call It Junkin. Don't forget, you can often find plastic planters for cheap at yard sales and thrift stores, give them a little TLC with this method, and you'll have a great new look for a low, thrifty investment.
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $4.00 Difficulty: Easy

    I don't use planters (too expensive). I purchase clear plastic shoe boxes at the Dollar store, throw away their lids and spray paint them to match the house. You can put two together and they look the same as a long planter. They last through our freezing winters for about 5 years before they crack and are non-functional. I place them on my deck railings with one screw through the bottom and are easily removed when they fall apart. Love this paint, I'll try it next time, thanks!...oh and make sure you drill a few holes through the bottoms for drainage before you put them on your deck.

    This is lovely! And the beauty of using plastic is that it is so light-weight.
