That's exactly what happened to Dabito of Old Brand New with this thrifted planter: I saw this brown planter at a thrift store and knew it would be perfect for my lucky money tree. I had to do something about the color so I grabbed some leftover yellow paint (Rust-oleum) and slapped it on.
The drips were a happy accident. At first, I wanted to paint it completely yellow but half way through, I was feeling the color block and then the drips happened when I stepped out to take a breather. Voilà, a yellow drip planter. So goodbye terracotta and hello yellow!
The lesson here? Be open to unexpected twists and turns while working on a project and don't be afraid to switch things up mid-stream - there is no one "correct" end result. The best, most interesting and unique-to-you results are often the ones that are inspired by the process itself!
