I’ve had these resin urns for over 7 years. The original finish was perfect with the siding and accents of our first home. Since then, the finish has faded, and the color is completely washed out against our light grey siding.
Due to the lack of mature trees on our property, our house gets full sun all day long during the summer and the harsh winter winds whip without the windbreak. I’ve struggled to keep even hardy perennials and evergreens alive in these planters.
I want to update them, but I’m unsure how spray paint will hold up on the worn finish. I decided to test out the paint on two urns I keep on the front porch. Next summer, I’ll decide if I should update the others. I also purchased realistic faux (gasp!) topiaries for the two urns. I’d like to order three more to place outside the garage doors.
Hopefully, this helps make the front entrance a little more welcoming…
