OMGee!  You are not going to believe this!  I had been drooling over these Pottery Barn Tuscan Planters for days and why not?  They are gorgeous!  But, my budget just couldn't justify the cost.  These 3 range from $199 to $349 ea.   Incredibly, I was able to make 3 for under $20.

Here's the unbelievable part.  We found 3 of these in someone's trash!! Yep! In the street just waiting for pickup!  Now I'm not normally a dumpster diver but we definitely could not pass these up!  

 

Planter Pottery Barn Hack

 

So, we threw them in the car and my mind immediately started planning.  And, its so easy anyone can take an old planter and do this.  

Here's how.

Supplies:

  • Spray Paint, I used Rust-Oleum French Cream
  • Masking tap (wide)
  • Paper (In the same isle at Home Depot)
  • Top Coat, Rust-Oleum Triple Glaze

Paint for Pottery Barn Hack

 I started by placing masking tape in a uneven way to imitate the natural chipping of the painted surface, even along the rim.  Tearing the tape vertically to create the rough edges is similar to tearing paper. If you tear in one direction for a short distance and then tear in the other direction (toward you and away from you) it is easier to control.   It's also easier to use small pieces and add them together if say the torn piece gets too narrow.  The more random the better.

Then, in order to cover the rest of it without having to use a lot of tape, I added the brown paper to the bottom from the tape line down.

Then I sprayed away making sure to use long even strokes.  

After letting this dry, I decided that I wanted a bit of a sheen to the paint so I added the topcoat.  Now I had to wait until it was completely dry to remove the masking tape for the unveiling. Since I did this in the evening (its hot here in Florida), I waited overnight.

The reveal is so exciting!!

Voila!  I love it! And to think, the planters were FREE!!!

So for now, they are sitting by the pool until I decide on the perfect plant to add to them.  Any suggestions? I'm thinking just a green plant but I can't decide.  I need your help.   Please share your ideas!!
