Springtime Concrete Painted Planter

5 Materials
1 Hour

Are you ready for spring? I am! I couldn't wait to get a few new things on my patio and decided to make these cute planters to spruce things up a bit. A little paint and some plants and your are ready to go.
I started out with 2 cement blocks purchased at Lowes. I cleaned them up with a stiff bristle brush and then sprayed them with paint that was about the same color as the blocks themselves.
I found this stencil at Lowes.com, but anything will work as long as it fits on the block. I cut out my pieces and then attached them using tape. Make sure your edges are down tightly.
I spray painted the whole thing turquoise, using two coats of paint. I also did the sides and back.
I had some number stencils, so I did my second block with our address.
I carefully removed the paper stencils and then sprayed the whole thing with clear varnish. I added some plants and they were all done! You can see more on my blog at HomeontheCorner.com.

    🤔 Hmm... 😂 Somebody spends a lil too much time either thinking about, or going to WalMart. 😂, BUT in the end it is a cute idea. 😉
