I love this bright purple planter! It could easily be done in any color to match your home.

Love this lantern planter idea! A garage sale or estate sale,would be a great place to find one! After painting, you could trim it out further with some vinyl ribbon trim, or even intertwine some battery operated mini-lights writhing the leaves of your plant, and the edges of the lantern for some extra visual interest! Thanks for such a super project!

I like repurposing. Why let something go to waste? This porch light planter is such a good idea and you can hang it up which always looks pretty. I also like the idea of spray painting it a bright color. I can't wait to get started. I need to decide what I'm going to plant inside it. I'm definitely going to make it something flowery.
