I decided to plant flowers in my pots on Saturday and I was successful in getting most of them done. When I went out to my shed though, there were many old pots,containers and plant stands that I have not used for a long time because they are looking old and needed some rejuvenation! Every year I think about pulling them out and giving them some TLC but another season comes and goes and I end up buying something to replace them. I couldn't stand to get rid of them because I still love the shapes and designs of these neglected treasures.
These shelves have been used to store all of my old clay pots and gardening containers so they were getting pretty neglected. I drug them out and gave them a good cleaning!
I haven't used these in several years, they were still in great shape but I was not liking the color.
These are usually on my deck but they have seen several years and the cushions could use some updating too! I took the cushions off to paint so I didn't get a picture with the cushions on.
I have quite a collection of clay pots because I am not sure where and what I want to plant so I use some and save some for the next year. As you can see these have been well used.
I actually found a great deal on this yellow paint at HL and so I bought what they had and then decided the pots would look great YELLOW!
I painted the plant shelves, avocado and the chairs a dark brown. I love the new transformation and they all found a new home on my back deck.
I painted everything in site! I am still thinking there are more poor items in the shed that need the same rejuvenating.
I painted the wire plant holders a rusty red, actually it was primer but I liked the look so much I just left it with the primer on! The direction sphere or what ever it is called, on the narrow plant stand,(what is the name for it?) I painted brown with a metallic top coat.
I am really liking the yellow pots in there (NEW) container.
It just makes me want to make some lemonade and sit down and have a break for a minute!
I didn't get a before picture of these yellow lanterns but they were in pretty bad shape! They are looking great with their new yellow coat.
I have to give my daughter Caitlin some credit for helping me break out of my "boring colors" and really you can choose almost any color when it comes to outside decorating!
Come back and see what else I have planned for my yellow paint!
