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!

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.
