Update Your Flower Pots With Paint

Living in the South we spend a lot of time in our outdoor spaces.  I like to have these spaces look inviting and cozy.  I do this with paint, fabrics, and plants. One of the easiest ways I have found to refresh our outdoor spaces is to update and upcycle your old flower pots.  I love to refresh ours with paint and do so almost every year.  Today I thought I would share with you some of the makeovers I have done as well as some of my blogger friends.  

Vintage Paint and more... painted flower pots to brighten your decor

I picked up this post several years ago and have made it over a few times.  It is made of a composite material that was done to look like faux concrete.  I loved it for many years but this year I decided I wanted it to have a bit of color to go with our furniture on our screened porch.  I love how just a bit of paint made this a very cheerful and pretty addition to this area.

Vintage Paint and more... dated black plastic flower pot updated with teal paint

This is a plastic pot that was sold with a seasonal plant that I decided to makeover also.  I simply painted it with one coat of teal paint that let a bit of the black show through and gave it a little vintage look. This year it has impatiens planted in it.

Vintage Paint and more... a composite flower pot made pretty with a craft paint

This is another of the composite pots I bought several years ago that was made to look like faux concrete.  I decided to paint it teal and then give the band of grapes and leaves around it a bit more color.  I love how it turned out also.

Vintage Paint and more... old urns painted teal to brighten a doorway

This is a concrete pot we purchased a few years back and the original finish peeled off with the direct sunlight and heat where it was placed.  We have a pair of these so I decided to paint it in an electric blue color that really pops in our garden.  The pair sit on either side to the entryway to our screened porch.  With the geraniums, dusty miller and asparagus fern they will grow into very full pots by summers end.

Vintage Paint and more... dollar store urns made elegant with black chalkboard paint
                                                                       Boston Fern Solution

This urn was a dollar store purchase I made a few years back and was a brown color.  I painted it with Rustoleum Black Chalkboard paint and then placed a Boston fern in it.  I love it.

Vintage Paint and more... composite flower pots turned into French country pots with black chalkboard paint and whitewashed with white paint
                                                        Sun Loving Container Garden

This pot is one I did a couple of years ago.  You might recognize that it's actually one of the above I repainted this year.  For this finish, I first painted the pot with the black chalkboard paint and then whitewashed it with white craft paint and sealed it.  It was perfect for the area I was using it in at the time but wanted to move it this year. 

That's all I have of my pot transformations so I would like to share a few that have been shared with our Share It One More Time Inspiration Party - I love each of them and think I will probably trying a few in our outdoor spaces.
