How to Change the Color of Your Flower Pots

One is a lonely number.

Especially when the spring/summer plants start fading.

I decided to add some friends.

Don’t you just love the end of season sales at Sam’s!

Of course they weren’t the right color , but never fear.  Spray paint to the rescue!

The flat black needed a little Yard & Garden patina. I diluted it with water, brushed it on and wiped it off.

It almost matches the old pots perfectly…not that I ever want perfect.

Now one is three or two is six.

Lonely no more and how about that owl. He showed up just to cover my address.

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I hadn’t seen an answer to the question regarding where to find the Yard and Garden paint. I found it at Hobby Lobby. It’s Anita’s Yard and Garden paint. I ordered some on-line.

      I LOVE the pots. I have some concrete drainage pots I’ve been “planning” to do something with. This is the perfect solution!

    2. This looks great! I love the aged look you accomplished. I saw a planter at the Goodwill store last night, should have grabbed it! I think I will be making a stop back over there…thanks for the inspiration!

    3. Debbie,
      I just found two planters in my studio and thought: What would Debbie do? {That would be you, not Debbie Doo.} Paint, of course! Your planters turned out spectacular — they look aged to (im)perfection!
      Your Friend,

    4. Your plants are wonderful grouped together and your porch just beautiful. I need to check out Sams!

      Thank you for linking to Potpourri Friday. I participation is appreciated!

    5. You did a GREAT spray job on that planter. I’m not one for perfect matching either. I don’t want things to look as though I bought them all at once!! I love the way you’ve arranged all your goodies.

      And your blog is gorgeous! I’ve signed up to follow you! It’s so beautifully designed.

      Thank you for linking up to Modern Country Style’s Fall In Love link party!


    6. Wow! Your front door looks beautiful…those new pots are fabulous…I hadn’t heard of the Yard and Garden Paint either…gonna have to check into that. Where do you buy that?

      I also love your wreath!

    7. So, so beautiful Debbie! I love the paint technique you used and they really do look aged now. And, where oh where did you get that welcome mat? I must have one! 🙂

    8. Great job on the urns…they do look vintage now! Love the grouping of plants on your porch. Thank you for linking to the Open House party.

    9. I’m so jealous of your large porch…mine is sooooo small:( I’ve done this to a few planters that I have picked up while out thriftin’…thanks for telling me about end of season sales at Sam’s…I was clueless:) They look outstanding on your porch and yes…one is a lonely number.
