DIY Modern Pink Planter

I just love June!  The weather is the nicest and the flowers are so beautiful.  It's really my favourite month.  We've been enjoying June so far and, today, I wanted to share a few new additions to our outdoor space(s) and a really basic DIY (if you can even call it that!)
One of my favourite new additions is this acapulco chair from Innit Designs.  They are a local Toronto company too.  This chair is super comfy and has a great modern look to it.  It's a pseudo father's day gift for the hubby since this spot by our back doors is his favourite place to sit.  The  pink planter is my "DIY".  My DIY basically was to spray paint a bullet-style planter pink since I couldn't find a pink one anywhere I looked.  Not much of a DIY, but I am super happy with it. :)

The planter I painted is one that I found at a local nursery.  I actually bought three of them since I liked their clean simple shape.  You can see above that I left the other two unpainted (at least for now).  I'm patiently waiting for my plants to fill in over the summer.  In case you might be wondering these are the plants I put in them: 

Large planter:   Cana Lilly (Bengal Tiger) - will have bright orange flowers
                      Creeping Jenny

Small Planter:  Fern

 For anyone interested in the details on the planters all I could find on the label was Braun (perhaps this company?) and "Portofino Collection".  I'm wondering whether these may be planters from last season since I couldn't find them online?  The spray paint I used was ballet slipper by Krylon.

So what do you think?  These planters and chair are just what this mommy Hubby needs to enjoy this beautiful month.
