Planter Makeover

Did you wonder, where that white container on my door came from..

I took this metal hanging planter from this:

To this:

Thanks to Krylon Dual Paint + Primer .

I used a sanding block to distress it a little, I just can’t handle perfect (at least not in this case).

Love the white on the dark front door!

While I had the paint out I decided to paint a few twigs.

Create my own little wintery forest.

I added some sparkle with Krylon Glitter Blast.  Love this stuff!

You see I had a few deer with no place to show.

Thank you Krylon for making my entrance a little more festive.  Both projects turned out great.  I love the results.  I will use both of these Krylon products again.  

****Krylon provided the paint for both of these projects****

    The planter painted white really pops against your dark door…it looks so pretty!
    I just bought the Glitter Blast paint last week. Of course, I have no idea what I want to use it for though. LOL Your branches & reindeer look great!

    I’m already in love with Krylon spray paints and I love the front door piece you made. I’ve passed these hangars by a dozen time lacking the vision to see the potential. Well, you woke me up! 😀 I want that!
    Merry Christmas, Debbie

    It’s not Christmas until I have a poinsettia, but also having pets (and not wanting to poison them) keeping those plants around the house is a bit of a challenge. Your planter is a genius idea and looks great in the white paint!

    So glad I stumbled across your lovely blog!

    A beautifully done project but as a spoilsport I shall now say I prefer the original look. . It would not have worked on your door though I know!

      You’re not a spoilsport :) when I bought it I loved the original color and still do. But after putting those white house numbers on the front door, I have really loved putting other white elements on there too. That’s one thing that I love about spray paint, one day it may go back to a dark color…who knows!

    I just love that glitter spray!! I’ll have to give it a try! Can I ask how you get companies to “give” you stuff?? I want to help my mother re-finish her cabinets..BIG project, and was going to try to get someone to sponser it.
