Paint is more then just for your walls. Recently, I did my own DIY project, total cost, $3.00. Several years ago, I purchased two planters, which over time began to show scratches, dirt and even had chips. Not wanting to just throw them out, (they still hold dirt after all!) I decided to just give it an update. I purchased a pint of high gloss black paint, (can be found at any home improvement store, but make sure to read the label fully, some do not stick to certain surfaces) and painted away. In as little as under 20 minutes, I had a brand new looking planter, and I think it even looks better then when they were new!
