I started with this.. yep, one even has a chip. Oh well, I carried on...
I went to Lowes and picked out Valspar Outdoor Color Spray Paint in Satin Honeywood. Pretty, yellow, happy color. I gave both pots 2 coats of spray paint. On the smaller pot I used a stencil to add a design and on the larger one I added glitter paint at the top. The stencil design and the stripe were painted using Martha Stewart Crafts Multi Surface Glitter Acrylic Craft Paint in Golden Beryl.
Next, I had to purchase cute flowers to go into the pots. Back to Lowes I went and purchased 2 potted plants, came home and instead of planting them immediately into the pots, I sat them on the side of our house under the dryer vent. Well, let me tell you now that sticking your potted plants under the dryer vent in summer is not a good idea. Add that to the fact that I totally forgot about them until we were outside playing and our little guy took it upon himself to urinate beside my plants and then he informed me that my plants had been "watered"!!! What is it with boys having to go to outside?!
In the trash they go!!!
Back to purchase more plants. This time I purchased mums.
I planted them immediately in my cute little pots.
Doesn't that stencil look darling? Here is a closer look.
This now makes the perfect spot for a relaxing morning snack.
