I hope every one had a wonderful Easter!
Ours was very hectic, but also, very nice.
We took advantage of our long weekend and the beautiful weather
we have been having and took care of a few outdoor projects
that we have been wanting to finish.
We started with cleaning our wooden planters and updating them with
a little spray paint. After the high temperatures we had last summer
and all the rain we got this winter, they were starting to look a little "run down".
We have several of these planters, on the front porch, in between the
two garage doors and on the back porch.
Since we had the paint out, we decided to just paint them all.
This is their new look for Spring
You can't really tell on the pictures, but, in person, they were looking pretty bad.
The more I scrubbed them, the worst they looked
I used Krylon Satin Almond for this project
Before and after
While we were waiting for the paint to dry, we gave the back porch
a good cleaning with the pressure washer and added a few pillows I made a couple of weeks ago and some Spring touches.
I added new pillows, placemats, flowers and candles to the table area
From the same material, I made some table mats for my small side tables
And also added some blue candles to the wall sconces
The porch will stay decorated like this until June, when I start decorating
our outdoor spaces for summer
Thank you for coming by to visit and always taking the time to
leave me a sweet comment.
Have a great week!
