Front Door Planters

I bought 2 of these brown metal wall planters at Michaels for my front doors. They were the right size and shape, but the wrong color. Of course, we all know some spray paint can work wonders so I painted them white and aged them to the color I wanted. I added some yellow tulips to them and am so happy with how they turned out! I am loving putting out Spring stuff!

Love it! Those exact same planters are on my "to buy" list when I travel to the "big" city this weekend.

I saw them the last time I was at Michael's & they were on sale but did I buy them? NO. Dumb me. Oh well I'm making the purchase this time.

I know I've said it before but I so enjoy visiting your sight. I too share your enthusiasm for spray paint. My neighbor tells me that's why I am always happy...because I'm always on a spray paint high.. he he

These planters look great. You need these wall planters if you want to have a good view of your house from outside. I've just bought similes ones from Ballard Designs.
