Plant Hanger and Paint Project

Some years ago I had purchased a wooden plant hanger at the Philadelphia Plant Show.

Through the years of hanging in my yard it had become so weathered and in need of some TLC .

I added it to this years spring list of to do's.

Wiping down and lightly sanding any varnish that may have been left on the hanger, making sure wood was clean and completely dry before beginning to paint.


The next step was to cover in white primer letting dry completely.




Next came 2 coats of white paint, letting dry completely between coats.

Decorating with a flower Stamp and pencil drawings , finishing off with acrylic craft paints.
Final step to coat with some outdoor sealer.
