All projects don’t have to be BIG
Or time consuming!
Sometimes it’s the little things that make you feel good! Working around the yard and exterior of the home can seem be daunting but it doesn’t have to when you see such little things you can change that make a huge difference.
The door that leads under our house is smack dab in the middle of the wall on our patio.
Where everyone can see it. (Mostly me!)
It just needed a coat of paint…easy.
Now it’s not an eye sore anymore.
See…How much better that looks.
I just used some exterior paint I already had on hand and it was completed in no time at all.
I bought this iron planter last year at Goodwill for $4. (Yes, I’m slow…)
It is hanging by my back door so we can store outside supplies like mosquito repellent and sunscreen. It comes in really handy for summer time outdoors.
Some white spray paint and now it pops against the brick.
AGAIN…easy and fast!
Maybe not AS fast…I painted it yellow first, didn’t love it, then went with white!
Seriously…anyone can do this!
Rust-oleum Hammered paint was perfect for this little project. These plastic pots have sat outside for a few years and had faded. Painting them a darker color made them look heavy and more substantial. I’d love cast iron planters but those can be very expensive. Spray painting the pots I already owned allowed me get a great look quickly at a budget friendly price.
Now my flowers are growing and the pot looks great!
So, what little things do you have around your house you can get done quickly? and easily?
What are you waiting for?
Now that we have our outdoor shed finished I think I will add the pots with flowers to the deck. I will post some final photos of the shed very soon.
