I love Ikea for planters. I think they're designs are modern and simple, and you really can't beat the price. I have a ton of these plain white ones which have always served me well for plants all through the house.
Now that I have my little girl and I can get away with a bit more pink in the house, I decided that I'd embellish one of the planters to give another pop of colour to the corner of her room.
This couldn't be easier and required only a tiny amount of Martha Stewart All-Purpose craft paint from Michael's, a planter and 10 minutes. I admit the lines might be straighter if I did it in 15 minutes and wasn't watching Friday Night Lights at the same time, but no matter, I'm still happy with how it turned out.
