I've done that before. They look new Wendy. Molly I've even stenciled designs on some of the ones I painted.
We have some white adirondeck style chairs that we have not been able to store out of the elements since moving here. If paint would renew them, I wll be painting next spring. Ilike the vivid colored adirondack style chairs that Lowes and the like are selling this year.

They sell this spray paint in the reddish/brown, green, and the white. I have a white one that is like a recliner except for the footrest part. It was a FD's gift to my husband many years ago. I'm going to get a can of the white for that one. It has a little white end table type that I use for a foot stool. Or, I may do the green like the planters.
Connie...if you get the infusion spray primer for a base coat, you can then paint latex over it....any color you choose! Lair taught me that trick. Charlene
After second thought I may consider painting them white again cuz if the paint comes off it would not be so obvious that they had been repainted. A nice color would look better where they are now I think. How well does that paint for plastic hold up??
I just moved them under our new maple tree in back yard-have no where else to go with them as we had to clear off the RV pad to make way for our "new to us" motor home that we pick up Weds. Heretofor the RV pad was like a second patio-about 35 ft long. The chiminea had to move too. Told the neighbors across the street what was coming and she kind of curled up her nose at the idea. We are zoned for it and that is one reason we looked at and bought this house.

I've never used it before so I can't say. Maybe someone else has used it and can let us both know.
Congrats on motorhome. Before you know it, the neighbor will forget it's even there.
I wish I could find the terra cotta color as I would like to paint all my big pots but will have to be when they aren't full of plants. LOL I actually found going through my painting stuff a little handle that fits on a spray can and makes a spray can gun (wish I had found that earlier this year when I was spraying painting hangers black. LOL) I forgot I had picked it up at a yard sale, its kinda like this
Now, did anyone actually think that when I said this, they would actually be put away til next year?
YOU GO WENDY, they look good and be so full by summer's end (I hate when it ends). LOL
You did a great job Wendy! I love redoing worn out looking things to make them look better and / or just for something different. A white wicker chair and side table that I had was looking pretty bad so I painted them and since my house and patio are in browns and burnt orange I had painted a lot of pots, a birdbath and a bench in those colors but where I am moving next year the house is gray and white and those colors just don't go together to well so I am going to redo all those before I move. I already did the bench white and the roses on the back of it I did in pink.......Kathy
Looks really good, Wendy. Couldn't wait, huh? LOL
I am not surprised that you filled some...just had to do it didn't you? They look wonderful and you have inspired a lot of us to re-do instead of buying new.
They look wonderful, Wendy! When you showed that you had painted them, I wondered how anyone could have 3 empty containers this time of year....lol. Your planting looks great and they look wonderful sitting on your patio....fit perfectly on the concrete walls, don't they? Charlene
They look gorgeous, Wendy! I couldn't have waited to fill them, either. I think you have inspired some pot and furniture makeovers with your success. You could have come up with a brand new photo thread idea!
