Create faux French Herb Pots from dollar store pots

With a few coats of craft paint, you can change the look of any pot. Use pots you have on hand or buy some discount or dollar store pots. Choose a color to match your decor and paint a rim in metallic paint. Add embellishments or a stencil design. Finish with a pearl coat or glossy finish and enjoy!

    are the pots ceramic or plastic? I don't have a dollar store where I live and I would love to do your pots. Did you varnish at the end?

    I really think these would make a back deck pop with color

    After Easter last year, my grocery store had plastic baskets marked 75% off. I got all they had to spray paint for my kitchen & bathroom. Not that mine look at all like the ones depicted. Would love a video of that painting technique
