Last summer, my neighbor pulled a cheap plastic planter out of the trash and presented me with it for my yard.  I thought it was the ugliest thing I'd ever seen, and ducked the issue every time she asked about it.



But the more I looked at it, the more I realized, it actually had nice lines.  And it was a nice height.  So, two cans of textured faux stone paint and some quick growing bedding plants later....



... I'm actually proud to have it in my garden!

And I'm looking for some more....

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very nice! It definitely has a terra cotta/stone feel going on now. I love that you used some hanging plants in it too -- gives it a romantic feel!

It looks so pretty in your garden, like it's been there for years. Great transformation.

Such a great update for something that would have probably ended up in land-fill. It looks great all planted up!

Very nice! It looked terribly kitschy, but you made it a stylish ornament!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Great revamp! One would never know that underneath there lurks white plastic.
