Painting outdoor cement flower pots

Greetings:

My parents have two (2) outdoor cement flower pots that are approximately 31" high x 22.5" wide at the widest point. The pots haven't been painted in over 25 years. My question is should I repaint them with Drylock Waterproofing Paint or would regular paint be alright?


Thank You,
King Purple Pimp

First you need to clean them good! Regular latex paint should be ok. The only benefit of a water proofing paint/primer is if moisture seeps thru the planter and that is best addressed from the inside.
