Painted Plastic Flower Pots

This year I really wanted to makeover my plastic flower pots to add color to my front "porch." Instead buying pots, I decided to paint the ones that I already had. I am so happy with the outcome!
My flower pots before....
I wiped the pots down and spray painted them with Rust-oleum All Surface Spray-Paint & Primer in metallic gold.
After the pots were dry, I used Frog Tape and taped off the area that I wanted to paint. I used Behr Dark Cobalt Blue to paint the lower half of the pots.
Once painted, my pots looked like this.
And here are the pots today! For the full tutorial check out my blog.
