The large terracotta-colored pot we used last summer for our porch planter just did not look right with the selection of coleus and other shade plants we wanted to use this year. We shopped around, only to find that it would cost close to $50 to replace that pot with a much more suitable black one. Then inspiration: we used a $7 can of black spray paint (for use on plastic) to create a glossy black pot in minutes. It looks great!

I never would have thought of that. I have some white plastic window boxes that could use a beauty treatment, I'll have to try it. thanks for the tip.
