After planting all we could in my standard pots (I always have two on my front porch and 3 on the back patio) I found myself with a few scraggly plants leftover. Not wanting to throw them out, the kids and I went fishing around the back of the shed. Emily spotted a few old pots looking more like candidates for the recycling bin than vessels suitable for a centerpiece. TOTAL COST OF THE PROJECT – $0.00!!I grabbed the bowl-shaped one and using some old spray paint that I had in the basement, I breathed at least one more year of life into an old planter. And, I didn’t let any flowers go to waste.First I cleaned the pot with soap and water and let in dry in the sun. Then, I sprayed 3 very light coats of spray paint onto the pot. Once the paint was dry, I filled it with some potting soil and the last remaining plants I had and voila!Let nothing go to waste if you can give it a little TLC!
