    Spray paint your buckets in assorted colors. Rustoleum 2X has a very large variety of colors.

    I would Start by painting them white (if your buckets are plastic - there is paint for plastic available at your local hardware stores) and find ribbons or magazine pictures of flowers or your favorites and paste on outside of your buckets and cover w/clear varnish - that would dress up your buckets. Have fun!

    I've seen cute camouflage for ugly planters made from pallet wood glued vertically around the sides. You can also just spray them a dark green and have trailing plants spilling over the sides.

    You can make pretty signs naming the plants that will stick into the soil.

    Classy is relevant. What I think is classy, you mightn't and veetsa votsa. However I saw a post here where a Hometalker had turned a white plastic container into an enamelware lookalike. I thought it was stunning. I've been unable to find the post but as I recall she started with white plastic--if yours isn't you can paint it--and used a Sharpie to color the rims. As I said, IMO, stunning.
