Chalk paint your planters!

I have a pretty good collection of these lightweight planters that I have purchased over the years. The problem is over time they get pretty shabby (not the good kind of shabby) looking. I decided to mix up a custom batch of chalk paint from my collection of latex paint and redid both of these pots. I couldn't be happier. They now match each other in color and look brand new for zero dollars! When they dried a gave them both a quick coating of clear wax, then went in with some brown wax to show off some of the highlights of the pot. Now I am even buying these at thrift and garage sales and getting them even cheaper, and they will be painted to match the rest of my newly painted planters.
