As you can see, it's off to a good start. Your plants are spreading and flowering again. Make sure your flower pots and planters stay in tune and give them some pretty new colours. Do you have a creative mind, or want to get started? Read our tips on how to get amazing results.

Flower pots or planters add extra colour and help give your interior or garden a style all their own. These pots can also be scattered everywhere: in your garden, on the terrace, the balcony or in a particular place of the house. The fastest and easiest way to colour them is to give them a nice coat of paint. Indeed, with adequate preparation, most materials can be painted.

These are the stone pots that lend themselves best. If you fill the pot directly with soil, it must be taken into account that the humidity in this can loosen the paint on the outer slope. You can prevent this from happening by putting a layer of plastic wrap in the pot or by using it only as a plant pot.

On smooth, non-porous surfaces, such as enamel pots or pots coated with old lacquer paint, you usually need to apply a tack coat.

Warning: flower pots and planters made of polyethene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) - plastic materials used for buckets, pipes, tarpaulins, etc. - cannot be painted.

Give Colour To Your Flowerpots And Planters

At work!

Preparing your flowerpot for painting on it is a snap and is done just like any other paint job:

  • First of all, clean your flowerpot or flowerpot with water, and possibly with detergent.
  • Rinse thoroughly and let dry well.

Prepare your brushes! Most plant pots and flower pots can be painted simply with water-soluble paint, such as wall paint or lacquer. If you still have some leftover paint, this is the perfect opportunity to use it. Apply the colour according to your preferences. With a brush, you have a good handle on your work. If you don't like the streaky effect of the brush, use a roller or paint with good fluidity. Lacquer, for example, is more fluid than wall paint.

Feel free to go crazy

    If your flower pots and planters are inside, you can apply virtually any decorating technique. So you can give free rein to your creativity. 

    For example, decorate your pot, once painted, with stickers or leftover wallpaper.

    Opt for fun decorative effects with special paints, such as Clay, Metallic, Arcade or Arcade Raffia paint.

    Make it possible to write on your jar, with chalkboard paint or Smart Wall Paint (for unique markers ). A great idea for leaving funny or practical messages for those around you.

    Create a misty, dreamlike cloud effect by first painting your pot blue and then adding touches of white with a cloth or natural sponge.

    Try out a geometric pattern with masking tape. Preferably use a fresh paint tape, which does not stick too strongly.

    Do you suddenly want another colour or another model? Nothing prevents you, after cleaning the well-dried pot, to repaint it.

    Tip: Use good quality paint. In doing so, you won't have to add an extra protective layer.

    Maintenance: Nothing Could Be Simpler

    Your pots with new colours are very easy to maintain. You can clean them simply by using a soft cloth or damp sponge. Always clean with water, but do not scrub too vigorously or use harsh cleaning products.

    There are many tips to make your flowerpots or planters amazing and to enjoy them for years to come. We wish you a lot of pleasure and satisfaction with the results obtained.
