I picked this vintage cement planter up at an auction a couple of weeks ago for $6. I have always liked these, and really wanted a matched pair to put on the front steps, but I really don't have room for two, so I decided to pick this one up when I came across it. My original plans were to peel as much of the black paint off as possible and repaint it white (which was the original paint color on it). However, the chippy black paint has kind of grown on me for it's shabby look. Now I don't know what direction I want to go in with it, but I need to make up my mind so that I can get something planted in it before long.
So, what are your thoughts? Stay with the shabby chippy black paint? Strip it down and paint it white? Maybe repaint it black? I would love to hear your ideas!
