You may have seen my Facebook Live where I shared some project ideas yesterday? If you didn’t, you can catch it here. Anyway, these little booties made an appearance. Well, one pair did anyway (I had to search the house for the other pair!) I had actually forgotten about these little cuties, but my husband found one pair in the garden when we were having a clear out. Which made me remember another pair that had managed to walk their way to the back of our cupboard. Now, let’s face it, they are a bit outdated and they don’t really fit in with the rest of our stuff. But I do love me some quirky planters and they were still in good condition. So, spray paint to the rescue!!
Now, I’ll admit I had not used spray paint a lot before the start of last year. But, once I’d tried it on an old chair we had, I was sold and have used spray paint for various projects since. It’s just sooo much quicker! You can check out another easy spray paint project here.
Spray paint has come a looooong way you guys. Metal, wood, plastic, ceramics .. you name the surface, chances are you can find the perfect one for what you need. And in most colours too!
As make-overs go, this one could not have been easier. I gave the planters a thorough clean and let them dry completely. Next I took an old box and placed the planter inside.
Follow the instructions on the can, but it’s pretty much shake, aim and spray! Use light coats to avoid running of the paint and that’s pretty much it.
I told you it was easy! I love the colour and the look of these booties now. Once they dried they actually look like they’re rubber. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think there is any way you can tell this was spray painted and hiding those drawings ? What do you think?
What do you need?
This is the paint I used
This colour is slate blue, but this particular range comes in 42 different colours, so there’s bound to be the perfect one for your project. AND .. this particular paint is suitable for outdoor projects too! Do you have anything in your home that you don’t like the look of, but could have a new lease of life? Go on, give it a go! You won’t regret it 🙂
