Hello! It is Friday and the last day of school for my kids. I am so excited for summer break and for this upcoming long weekend. Ever since it has warmed up I have been doing more and more projects including things that need to be spray painted. I go through spray paint withdrawals in the winter.
You might recognize these planters. They are in my book, Natural Accents, and were originally gold. I really liked them gold but I wanted them to be in my office and gold would not have worked as well. Plus, the gold paint has actual metal in it and so it showed finger prints if you moved them or touched them for any reason.
I sanded them a bit and painted them black! You can see how much my ZZ plant has grown since I first got it. The jade plant had an unfortunate accident when I took it out of the pot to be able to paint. I have forgiven my kids and I replaced it with another plant. All is well :) This is a new snake plant since the other one got transplanted to the stump planter last year. I just love snake plants!
My favorite thing about these planters is the way I designed the bottom. I attached the bottom higher up into the planter so a bowl could fit underneath to catch any water that may drip out after watering. These planters are actually bigger than they seem in pictures and I didn't want to lug them to the sink to water them like I do for some of my smaller plants.
They are pretty happy in my office under the fingerprint art!
I hope you have a happy long weekend filled with many projects :)
