For most of the day, I was outside spray painting the six planters on my deck fuchsia and bright orange. You can really go crazy with color in outdoor spaces. Here is what my planters looked like before:
|They were pretty blah!!|
|The transformation begins.|
I used Rustoleum Painters Touch spray paint with primer. I originally was going to paint the planters red and yellow. I purchased the paint but when I saw the inspiration photo, I changed my mind about those colors.
So by 4:00 pm today, I finally completed the last planters and here is the end result:
|This is a pot rester. it keeps the planter from resting on the top of the deck or other hard surface. It allows the water to drain from the planter. It was gray and I spray painted them orange and fuchsia.|
|Oh yeah, Thelma and Louise look great with the planters!|
|I bought new flowers, the geraniums were starting to look a little faded from the sun.|
Here is my "to-do" list for my deck and patio:
- Purchase a rug for the patio.
- Paint my table and chairs the color of Thelma and Louise.
- Pressure wash and stain the deck and fence.
Maybe I'll start spending more time on MY deck instead of my neighbor's!
If you have planters that look a little tired and worn, refresh them by painting them a bright, fun color!
