I love spray paint transformations. They are quick and low budget, with such a high impact. It is my go to solution for getting the look I want for less!
We purchased a spruce tree off a Christmas clearance cart in January. The tree came in a large metal “Joy” planter container (how exciting that this planter has my name on it!). I knew I had to use it around the house somewhere!
I was given a small olive tree for Mother’s Day, and thought the planter would be perfect size to re-pot the tree into. The red and silver Christmas colors don’t really match the house, so I decided to spray paint the planter to give it some farmhouse style!
Easy Planter Makeover:
I cleaned the planter thoroughly with clorox wipes and let it dry. Then, I went over the whole outside of the planter in Rustoleum in Ivory. I sprayed just the top couple inches of the inside rim.
After 24 hours, I lightly distressed over the embossed “Joy” section and the rim with with sandpaper to show the metal under the white. I sprayed a final coat of poly sealer to protect it from the elements. Then, it was ready to pot my olive tree!
I love my new neutral farmhouse planter. A little paint gave it a whole new look. This olive tree topiary will be lovely in the living room in winter, or out on the deck in the summer.
