Before and After

I picked this little planter up for a few dollars, thought it would make a cute addition to the yucky yard!

*Before*  You can barely see it!

*After*  I still need to a little touch up, I ran out of white paint.
 Maybe I should have painted this pink.

 I even did a little replanting, not sure what type of flower these are, I just got them out of the yard.
They were both purple, so I planted them together.

I also purchased some seed packs, think I'll try my hand at germinating and see how that turns out.


  1. Fun planter and I love the two colors! The snow is almost all melted...can't wait for spring.

  2. Super cute. I'm looking for a quick paint project as well.

  3. Wow I love that. My husband goes gardening and flower crazy in the spring and summer.
    Have a great weekend!

  4. I totally am into bicyles and this makes a wonderful planter. I believe those are violets in your pot which wont bloom all summer I dont believe. Some trailing ivy would look nice also as it twined around the bike. Love it. LJ

  5. What a cute planter! I think this looks like the perfect addition to your garden!

    Thanks and have a wonderful day!


  6. That turned out so cute! Great transformation!

  7. Hi Kim! The larger plant looks like Tradescantia... or commonly called Spiderwort!
    Your Garden is going to be a lot of fun this year!


Thank you for visiting!
