Turn Your Old Hamper Into A Hamper Planter

Rescue an old louver fronted hamper and recast it as an outdoor planter with exterior paint. Louvered doors are painstaking to hand paint so using the paint sprayer will save time but also create a smooth and even finish.

Step 1:

Brush and clean hamper thoroughly to remove all dust and dirt.
Use sand paper or a sanding block to remove any chippy or peeling paint.


Step 2:

Fill the Wagner Flexio 3000 detail nozzle with paint.
Hold the sprayer 4-6 inches from the hamper and glide in an even horizontal pattern from left to right.
Repeat spraying all sides and back. Let dry for several hours and repeat.


Step 3:

Once dry you can fill the planter with fresh growing flowers in pots.
Remove plants for watering and store planter in cool dry place for the winter to keep the paint from cracking in the cold.
