Black & White Striped Planters

~DIY Stripes~


Don’t you just love when you complete a project and then fall in love with it?!?!? Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Some projects just do not work out the way we plan. Luckily, this one did!

I have fallen in love with my new black and white striped planters!

It all started with these little red planters that once held some ugly Christmas flowers. The flowers had to go, but I knew the planters could be saved. I just needed to figure out the perfect look for them.

I threw around several ideas, but decided on a sort of “Kate Spade look”…black and white stripes. My first step was to paint the planters black. Once they were dry, I created the stripes using painter’s tape. I used DecoArt craft paint in Lamp (Ebony) Black for the base and White Wash for the stripes.

My mantel has a whole fresh attitude with my new planters. The striped planters fit right in with the existing black, white and red that highlight the mantel.

I love the black and white stripes! They’re classic, fun and sharp!

This was such a quick and easy spruce up of some ugly little planters and the best part is that the result is fabulous!

    In fact my sun room is in the middle of a makeover and is black and white striped. Have you seen how some diy’ers are painting soup cans with black and white stripes? I think it’s perfect to hold pens for your office.
