Unlike our parents, we live in a world of disposable things. We as people overall are more apt to throw out broken items and go buy new ones, rather than trying to fix them. As avid DIYers, D and I are still prone to this behavior, but when on of our nicer planters broke clean in two pieces, we decided to give fixing it a go before we popped for a new one.
Luckily, it was a pretty clean break through-and-through.
We’re guessing that too many seasons with this planter sitting in direct sun all summer and then being exposed to the freezing winter temps caused the damage in the first place.
Whatever the cause, fixing our ceramic planter turned out to be a fantastic idea.
With around 30 minutes of time, and a day to cure, we fixed that gorgeous planter right up using a two-part epoxy. It was actually quite easy, and we show you how to do it in the video below:
