Updated Urns – Summer Paint Party

Hey all!

I’m kicking off this Monday by joining in at Debbiedoos Summer Painting Party and Centsational Girl’s Garden Link Party.   I recently posted about container gardening for dummies and how much I love the way flowers brighten up the exterior of a home.  So, you can imagine how happy I was that the previous owner of our home left us some goodies to work with on the front porch.

See those worn down urns at the bottom of the steps?  Great bones right?  They would be a nice complement to the black urns I have already if I just spruced them up a bit…

So, I lugged them over to the side of the house to assess the possibilities.

Nothing a little spray paint can’t fix.

Martin the Wonder Dog wasn’t impressed.

But look at them now!

What have you been sprucing up this summer?

    They look wonderful, Jenny! I love how they work with your existing black ones. You have a really nice entry to your house – I love that you have enough room to sit.

    Very pretty makeover!

    I understand completely how difficult it is to win decor approval from Canine Kids!;-)

    So pretty! Love the contrast of the black pots and your light-colored house. They pop so much better even though I liked their worn "before" finish. Nice plantings too!

    They look so much better after the paint job. The color of the flowers really stands out.

    Have you thought about switching their placement, tho? Putting the taller urn where the shorter ones are and then putting the shorter ones on the lowest step? Just an idea… I'm a nut for symmetry. LOL
