We could not be more excited that spring is finally here! One of our favorite ways to celebrate a new season is by incorporating a fun splash of color into the home. It’s safe to say we have been in full DIY mode around here. You will not believe how easy it was to add the perfect shade of pink onto this planter.

We needed the perfect accent color that would pair best with all of our favorite flowers and plants. We headed over to thepaintstudio.com and picked out this delightfully chic color: Bubble Bath!

After we selected a color, we began to prep the area to paint the planter. Note: You are welcome to use any size or shape of planter you wish, but we went with a medium-sized Italian terra cotta planter!

After laying down some newspaper (better safe than sorry), we started painting the planter. We used a 9-inch roll brush for the outside and a simple square-cut sponge brush for the inside. Depending on the size of your planter, you may want to use a bigger or smaller brush. Or, if youre feeling adventurous, try a patterned roll brush for added flair!

Apply a second coat of paint, and let it dry. We know, waiting is always the hardest part. Once your planter is dry, you can put your plant inside! Next, take a step back to admire your amazing DIY skills! Snap an Instagram pic, and show us how amazing your planter looks by tagging us and using the hashtag #31daysofcolor. We cant wait to see how your new planter looks!

To better show off our beautiful planter, we placed it on a hairpin-leg stand for the entire world to see! After all that hard work, Melissa Johnson treated herself to an OPI manicure, using the matching OPI Bubble Bath nail polish. A color like this is perfect for home and nail decor! PS.
