I had a couple small boxes in my stash and thought they'd make perfect little planters for my patio.
I began by sanding each box with the Delta Sander. Next, I used FolkArt Brushed Metal paint, painting one with Brushed Copper and the other with Brushed Antique Gold. I painted 3 coats on each, sanding between each layer.
I used a FolkArt stencil, selecting one of the designs, I painted it with FolkArt Color Shift paint in Green Flash.
To create drainage, I used the Precision Rotary Tool to drill holes in the bottom of each planter. This is such a handy tool to have.
Next, I used a larger drill bit to drill holes in the sides of each planter. This way I can hang the planters if I decide to.
I'm thinking these planters can double as bird feeders during the winter.
I can't wait for the flowers to fully bloom.
Thanks for stopping by.
