Your choice of material for crafting a planter will ultimately dictate its durability and ability to withstand inclement weather conditions. Fiberglass is one of the best choices, as it can withstand high temperatures and humidity without losing structural integrity; wood can also make an attractive option with stainable or painted finishes, creating unique finishes for more personalization.

No matter the material of your planter, priming it before painting is vital for successful results. This step ensures the paint sticks securely to its surface and lasts longer, leaving your surface clean of blemishes or rust spots. A high-quality water-based primer such as True Value EasyCare Ultra Premium Exterior Primer/Sealer should do the trick – apply one light coat of primer and allow it to dry thoroughly before painting your project.

Are you looking for ways to add personality and color to your planter? Consider adding a stencil and some brightly-hued paint. There is an assortment of stencil designs online, or you could make your own using masking tape and paint. Once dry, carefully peel away both masking tape and stencil to reveal a personalized touch!

Add a luxurious touch to any space with this polished wrought iron planter that features a lustrous coating for an eye-catching display of low-profile succulents or other plants and adds visual interest in corners or on staircases. This sophisticated piece makes an excellent centerpiece.

When choosing a planter, it will need to be moved around regularly for you to tend to your veggies or flowers; otherwise, it can take up a lot of space and become cumbersome to move. Thus, it is crucial that its size suits both dimensions of your room and allows easy transportation.

If you prefer more permanent solutions, concrete may be an ideal material. Strong and resilient, it can easily be stained or painted to blend in with its surroundings while remaining stained or paintable for aesthetic purposes. Unfortunately, concrete is less mobile than fiberglass and could damage surrounding structures if moved improperly.


An hourglass planter makes a grand statement in any space, whether indoors or out. At 1stDibs, antique and vintage versions bearing Mid-Century Modern, Modern, or Scandinavian Modern hallmarks add flair to living rooms or foyers while perfectly matching other decor items, from shapely seating to rustic benches.

Before painting your planter, take some time to consider what color palette would work for both interiors and exteriors. Depending on your wall paint hues and the amount of natural lighting in each room, the appearance of different shades of planters may differ significantly from each other. If unsure which hues match best, purchase several color swatches and place them alongside your farmer to help select an ideal shade. Once found, prime the surface to ensure smooth application of a fresh coat of paint.

Though primer can be purchased and applied online for optimal results, opting for products designed specifically for your material is wiser. Such products typically utilize high-grade resin with an automotive-grade finish to resist chipping and fading.

If you decide to paint rather than purchase your planter, choose a neutral hue that complements your room’s existing decor – for instance, gray or white will work perfectly with existing sofas, chairs, and window treatments in any space. Plus, these colors make mixing and matching other decorative items simple!

Add texture to your fiberglass planter by customizing its finish with something unusual, such as rust or gold spray paint finishes from spray paint kits; these finishes create an industrial yet rustic aesthetic for an eye-catching display of plants.

Add a personalized touch by stenciling words or images onto your planter with paint and masking tape for a customized design. When finished, seal off with decoupage sealer to protect it while maintaining the surface – you may even find stencils online that feature geometric patterns or flowers!
