Inspired by Rifle Paper Co: DIY Painted Planters
Time: 20 minutes per pot
Materials: clay planter, Benjamin Moore paint, Rifle Paper Co paper, brush
Ever since I made over this storage box, I have not stopped dreaming about ways to incorporate that wrapping paper from Rifle Paper Co into all of my DIYS. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I’d cover my walls if I could. And while these diy painted planters don’t have the same floral design, the color palette is a complete match thanks to Orchard Supply Hardware!
To get the same color scheme for my planters as the paper, I took in a some of the leftover scraps from my decoupage project to Orchard Supply Hardware. They were then able to match it perfectly to colors in the Benjamin Moore line, creating a custom palette for my project.
You can bring in anything (as long as it’s the size of a quarter) from a purse to a fabric scrap and get it as a paint color. I was also able to get the plants and pots (on sale!) while I was there. It may just be my new favorite hardware store, just saying.
PS If you live in Portland, the Orchard store in the Hollywood district (across from Trader Joe’s) is open now, but there will also be a grand opening event in May that you won’t want to miss!
