Today was a totem lovers paradise, so, I decided im going to make one. Here are some cool planters. The plastic terra cotta ones are going to get painted. More posts coming as I still only know how to post one picture at a time.

Those are great. I'd love to find some buckets like those.

Looks like a minnow bucket & coal carrier. I have some of those urn looking plastic planters. They last pretty well, I've had them 3-4 years & haven't broken or cracked yet, would last better painted tho. Mine are white. They had green & color you have also at the 99 cent store. Didn't see them this year. Love your long 1/2 barrel thing too at back of pic. Wipe the metal down with alcohol before you paint it & try not to touch it except on handles so when it is dry from alcohol, it will keep paint on. Jan

Thanks Jan. I have a close up of that posted under 'wine barrel take 2' if you want to see it better. Also check out 'glue a totem?.....' for other awsome finds from today. Thanks everyone *hugs*.

Wonderful finds!
I have some of those plastic planters (large.) I had painted them to look like rusty iron and they really did. A neighbor ran accross the street to tell me they looked awful, lol. I have one small one inside painted to look like non rusty iron.
The paint did chip on the outdoor ones after a few years so I put them in the garage where they are still waiting their next look. I'm eager to see what you do with yours. If I redo them , I will prime with kilz, or something.

I like the urns too!
I also spray painted with plastic fusion paint.
Actually I think I bought the 'spray plastic with this'
(don't remember the name) paint and than used any color spray paint.....
Makes the plastic pots look wonderfully colored!

What great finds, I love the coal bucket thingy. I too have the urns. I picked one out of someone's trash on my morning walk. I washed and painted and it is wonderful.
