They keep the clutter up off your desk for a harmonious space.My office is located in a small corner of our master bedroom. It is a perfect spot to work but offers no other space for my pens, pencils, and X-acto knife. To keep the space clean and add another design element, I put together these super cute and easy hanging wall planters that also doubles as a pen storage.

I found these cute wooden planters at Target for $3.99, which I feel like is a steal. They are super sturdy and on trend. I decided to give it a cream and gold two-tone paint job using my favorite products- chalk paint and spray paint.

To make these easy hanging wall planters, I recommend:

Directions

My first step was  applying chalk paint to the entire outside and top half of the wooden planter. I used Antique White by Annie Sloan. Unfortunately my paint had gotten pretty thick, so I simply added water little by little until I got a smooth consistency.

After the paint dried, I taped around the bottom half to create a fun geometric design. Next, carefully covering the top half, I used more tape to secure the scrap paper to protect the white part from overspray. In an open space, I sprayed the entire bottom half gold and let completely dry.

After I removed the tape, I was pretty disappointed with the lines. The paint bled most likely because I didn’t sand first. Frog tape is way better than the blue stuff. It leaves the cleanest lines.

Next, I drilled two holes in the back of each planter so that I could hang them. Using my drill, I spaced the holes about one inch apart. Using a paint pen, I evened out the gold line. Last, I thread the string through the holes and secured the ends together with a knot.

Finally, I hung my planters up in my itty bitty corner using a simple finishing nail. In one planter I added flowers, the other, my pens. I also used this same spray paint for my door mat tutorial here. I am obsessed with it.
