Another planter? Yes. I can’t be stopped apparently!

Lately I’ve been finding lots of interesting “planters” at thrift stores, like this mid century DIY, this macrame hanging planter and this terrarium. It’s fun to see what interesting objects can be turned into a beautiful container.

This fiberglass planter is intended to be a plant holder {unlike some of the things I turn into planters}. I liked it because it was big and simple–and often large planters are expensive. I kept it plain for a while, but last week I decided to make it prettier with a little gold paint.

It’s Monday, how about some hellos?

diy-fiberglass-planter-lisa-leonard-04 Hello a little streaky but I didn’t mind. The tape kept the lines fairly clean. I’m pleased.
