Sometimes I do things on the whim… okay, maybe like, all the time. We were looking for plants for our new greenhouse and I came across these planters from Canadian Tire and I immediately knew I had to make them into DIY cement planters. I then posted them and a follower said they look identical to these planters from CB2… but they are 480.00 more!!
DIY Cement Planters – CB2 Dupe
I purchased these planters from Canadian Tire, but you could source similar planters from a retailer near you and I used Tremclad grey primer.
The look like cement – even up close but they’re plastic! This method could work on really any planter, and if you wanted to add texture to a basic plastic planter, you could rub it in dirt or even mix dirt into your paint.. and then coat with the grey spray paint.
