Finally done–in aqua and red.
Back when we lived in our little white house and my free time was non-existent and involved packing and freaking out, I found a tutorial to make an awesome planter. I shared it via a link love Friday post and decided that it would look awesome on my new awesome porch and declared that I would be making it! Post haste!
And as soon as we moved, Auntie Awesome and I took the girls for a shopping trip where I bought all the supplies to make the planter. All of them!
And then, I left them sit in the garage for a month and a half.
I don’t really know why. Maybe moving was harder than I thought?
But, on Monday night I finally slapped some spray paint on that sucker and Tuesday the girls and I planted and this is what we have.
Isn’t it happy looking? I may still opt to stencil our initial or house address on it. Verdict is out.
Also, we decided to plant herbs instead of flowers. It’s really late in the growing season and we love fresh herbs, so it was a win/win.
If you decide to make this, you may find you have trouble getting the pots to sit flat at first. Don’t worry! The weight from the pots will flatten the dirt and everything will be even/flat.
Also, the Princess and I went to Walmart to buy our plants. Plants are hella cheap right now, including big patio planters with tomatoes! I bought three boston ferns to hang on the porch for the stickered price of one. See? More pretty!
