Before & After: Abbey’s Bullet Planter

before and after bullet planter makeover

I have to admit my mixed feelings on Abbey’s makeover — while I love the after — I also love the before.  I suppose for me, my preference depends on the place that the planter will ultimately reside.

But I’m curious, what would you do with a bullet planter like this?  Paint it or no?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    depends on where it would go, as you said. Love the shape, btw. Seems to be quite old?
