Woooo!!!! It's (unofficially) summer! We began creating our patio oasis early this year, since the weather was so nice. I spray painted my black railing planters this amazing shade of blue to match my new metal plant stand (it replaces the awesome wooden plant stand that finally disintegrated.) I painted a few other plastic planters in various shades of green, salmon, and yellow. They look so bright and colorful, I LOVE it! I'm undecided about spray painting the plastic crates though. Has anyone tried it? Will I need 20 cans of paint to get every nook and cranny covered?
There's a new addition to my garden! I picked up this three tiered water fountain from a sample sale at work. It's gorgeous and has LED lights and a fountain with different sorts of spray options. Unfortunately, there are no power outlets outside so I won't be able to take advantage of those fun features. That's okay, I think It would be so much cooler as a planter instead. We're drilling holes and adding plants this weekend. I can't wait to show you how it turns out!
I hope you stay tuned for future Patio Garden tour posts. I'll show you how I converted this re-purposed water fountain into a really pretty planter and list the plants I used in my containers and planters.
