Have you seen the beautiful concrete swan planters that are so popular right now? I am loving them, but most are out of my price range, so I want to show you how I turned an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan planter using a plastic swan which made this project very affordable.
Several months ago I saw Kathy (aka r.house_) do a makeover on a plastic swan and create a beautiful planter. I was so inspired and decided to try it myself, so I went on a search and found this plastic swan. By the way, if you aren’t already following Kathy on Instagram, you are missing out. She is crazy talented and has the most beautiful home!!
I began by painting a base coat of light gray paint, using a chalk paint I already had on hand. Because this is just a base coat that will peep through in places, I didn’t worry about completely covering it.
