I stopped at a garage sale the other day and scored these great galvanized steel containers for $5 each!
(I think they were originally from IKEA)
If you give a woman bare galvanized steel she will probably need to paint it!!!!
Wait until you see how cool they turned out!!
I always “lust” after those fancy ceramic pots at the upscale garden stores…..so I tried to mimic the look of the glaze by letting the spray paint drip and run…..I think I nailed it!!!

Wow, I love how that turned out – the hummingbird placement is a nice touch.
They look splendid. Very high end.
The containers turned out fantastic! And you did an awesome job putting the fountain and plants together; those colors really do work well together. I'd be thrilled if you would link this up to my current link party so everyone can see how great it is! http://practicallyfunctional.net/2012/06/the-fun-in-functional-link-party-4/
Wow, this is beautiful. We are currently working on our front and back yards, I should really check out garage sales, maybe I will find a treasured piece like you did. Thank you for linking up to my Our Favorite Things Link party. Have a great week
You did a great painting job, but the real beauty is in your idea to redo the fountain. I love how it looks, and the hummingbird is the perfect touch.
Of course we can't leave well enough alone! It's a girl thing!! I am your newest follower and off to visit your almost no sew box cushion post.

Beautiful!! Perfect for a deck or patio. I cannot believe you did all that yourself. They look perfect. I am a bit craft challenged over here but they came out wonderfully.
Love your pot/fountain project. I could do this. They look lovely.

These came out great, especially that fountain. Too cute! You can also fill the bottom of planters with packing peanuts.
