Making 55 gallon containers look nicer

11 years ago

I have a white plastic 55 gallon barrel that I am thinking of cutting in half to make two planters/containers for small trees. The problem is that the plastic is stained and is rather ugly. I want it to fit in with the style of my brick paver patio. Does anyone know of ideas for making these half barrels look nicer? One idea would to paint them with Krylon Fusion paint which is supposed to work well on plastic. Has anyone done this and how did it turn out? Any other ideas? Post pics please! Thanks.
