DIY // Faux Metal Planter

I just got back from my trip to Ventura and LA last night and have a lot to catch up on today. But I wanted to pop in this morning to share these metallic planters that I made for Curbly recently.

All in all, each one of these took me about 5 minutes to make, and I already had all of the supplies, so it cost me nothing. Don’t you love it when that happens?
