If you’ve ever bought any plants for you yard then you probably have a few of these not so attractive black pots stored somewhere in your home. (You may also have an adorable, although very loud, stubborn and moody toddler, if you do, this post will not help you with that.)
But, if you’re like me, then you have dozens of them (the pots, not toddlers) floating around your garage, shed, basement and attic just waiting to be used because they’re pots and they must be useful for something. Right? So you keep them, indefinitely, and you accept more of them from friends and family, who know you like plants, because they can’t bear to throw them out either, but unlike you and me, they don’t want them cluttering up their house.
Meanwhile you go out and buy similar pots because they’re prettier colors.
Enter the always useful can of spray paint. You have your choice of any color, and one $4 can will cover a dozen or more pots depending on their size.
We’ve previously done pink and blue pots for the twins to each have their own flowers, but this year I went bland and got a terra cotta color to match my other pots.
Oh, and one last thought, as far as paint durablity goes, we’ve found that most of our pots look nice for about 3 years before we have to repaint them.
