Hi, so wonderful to have you! The weather around here has been beautiful, and I’m loving every minute of it! I’ve been planting tons of flowers! Each year I opt for a color pattern and specific flower, and this year I let the kids decide. They chose shades of purple pansies. I am really loving the color combination together! I will share some photos of our front landscaping another time. Until then, I’m sharing a fun little way to update some old flower pots you may have lying around!
Okay, so could this before pic be any more horrid, gracious! A few years back I bought these light yellow plastic pots at Target. They’ve done their job rightfully so by housing some beautiful blooms, but I just wasn’t feelin’ the color any more. I knew it was nothing a little spray paint couldn’t fix! But, not just any spray paint… Chalkboard spray paint! And yes, I know what you’re thinking… “she’s still into that chalkboard craze?” and the answer is YES, yes I am! The possibilities are endless and I love letting my imagination run wild.
I cleaned up the pots and began spraying an even coat of chalkboard spray paint on each pot. It’s important to let each coat of paint dry completely before applying the next. Once the first coat was dry, I applied a heavy second coat, and let dry. To activate the chalkboard effect, grab a piece of chalk and begin rubbing it over the entire piece. This is an important step not to skip! Wipe off using a lightly damp paper towel and you’re all set to go! I like the look of chalk roughed up, or rubbed on there, so that’s the look I went with!
I wrote “watch me grow” on one of the pots, pretty fitting, don’t you think? 😉 And please excuse our horrible looking deck. We still have yet to do anything with that mess! But, look at that.. Little Lola girl decided to pose with the new flower pots! She’s a fan of them, and I am too! I can’t wait to see and enjoy the beauty of them, and the flowers!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
