$0.97 Makeover

Let's face it, my favorite house projects are the cheap and easy ones. I'm a sucker for instant gratification, I suppose. And well, it doesn't get much easier than 5 minutes spent spray painting or cheaper that $0.97 spray paint.

I decided to forego my DIY personalized planters this year, in favor of some solid black ones. I had some mismatched planters from my first house that have been sitting in my garage for the past 3 years.

















All they needed was some black spray paint to cover the dull stain of the largest wood planter and to match the ceramic of the other two. I picked up some matte black el-cheapo spray paint from WalMart and sprayed away using light even strokes.


















*Although I did spray paint these inside my garage, I did have the main garage door open and a fan blowing behind me for circulation. I usually take pieces that I paint to my backyard.

Just fill with soil and add pretty flowers and you're done!























Here's a quick refresher on the entry when I moved in:























Here it is in it's current state. (I painted the surround, the door black, added a storm door and installed a brass door knocker from Restoration Hardware.)

One more of the entire front exterior.
Happy Summer! -S
