Spray Painting Planter Urns

Spray Painting Planter Urns

As I set out to make our front entrance stunning and thus add to my curb appeal, I look at our dated planter urns and sigh.  I paid good money for them approximately 5 years ago, but living through 5 winters of snow and ice have taken a toll on them and they no longer look sleek and stately. They are rusted and look dated.

I checked out other urns to replace these and was surprised at the prices.  I couldn’t find any in the price range that I wanted to spend so I came up with plan B.  Spray paint!

The next big decision was what color and what type of paint should I use?

The traditional black urns felt too formal for our new home.

Checking out the various spray paint options at my local hardware store, I decided on Rust-oleum with multicolor texture in Desert Bisque.

(I’m not being paid to promote this product.)

It goes on smoothly but it does take alot of paint to cover it.

Here’s what it looks like after 2 cans of spray spraying 2 urns at a time.

4 cans of spray paint later for 2 planter urns I finally get the look I want.  I let the black show through in tiny spots for texture and interest.

Once I finished it I didn’t like the urns for the front door anymore (lol) so I moved it to the back which I feel adds the final touch to complete the patio look.
