So, have you checked out any of the garden stuff at the dollar store yet? They have some good stuff right now! Sharon at Keen Inspirations came up with a way to make a dollar store “stone” planter look even more stone-like. She picked up a can of multi-color textured spray paint and coated three planters with it. She even came up with a little “inside secret” to help stretch the paint even further, and gives other tips (like what kinds of paint to buy). Check out her blog for the info on how to transform your planters.

Project Estimate:

  • Planter, $1
  • Can of special spray paint, $5.77 (will cover three planters)

Total: $6.77 (but you can get 3 planters out of one can of paint).
