One of the pictures I shared last week in my post about 17 Pretty Planters Ideas was these beautiful planters from Ballard Designs. I love these planters, except I don’t really like the scalloped edge. Plus, I did not like the price tag! The largest planter in the picture below sells for $149.00!!!
So I was so excited when I saw this large wood planter at Goodwill for $6.50! I snagged it up and took it home!
It has wheels on it to make it easy to roll around.
And it is a very large planter! Large enough to hold a small child. ;)
So I cleaned the planter and then rubbed some Liquid Deglosser all over it to get it ready to paint. Next, I just painted the planter white (with paint I already had), except for the wood trim and wood handle.
$6.50!!! Isn’t that great?!
I decided I wanted to add a monogram to my planter for an extra little touch.
I used a stencil that I already had, and yes, I painted it on my couch! My house is a construction zone right now, so it doesn’t really matter where I paint. :)
I used this stencil on two previous projects. Just click on the pictures to view those posts.
Here are some pictures I took of my monogrammed planter.
I love how the monogram matches my black patio furniture.
I am so thrilled that I got the same “look” of the Ballard Design planter but for $143.00 less!
Woo to the Hoo!!
Have you found any great deals at Goodwill or yard sales lately?
