I needed to fix the back that was falling off. I have to say, that box of 400 Finishing Nails I bought just keep coming in handy!
After a light sanding, I began with the four coats of white matte spray paint.
When it was finished, I was so excited to put it on my porch with my adorable Christmas Tree Shop lantern on top.
I ended up loving the lantern so much, I bought bigger ones to hang from the planters' hooks--since my thumb is officially black and I've concluded I cannot care for a plant...at all.
