Well, just after I said, I don’t have a lot of time… haha
Which I really don’t, but the sad fact is, I am procrastinating from beginning a ginormous job of painting my living room and kitchen.
I really want it done, but it is a monumental task with four children and there is just no way around that.
So instead of painting like I should be, I am going to share some pictures.
Alright, alright… I will quit jabbering and get on with it so I can go paint. 😉
Yesterday, I made this.
I had seen these before and told myself I was going to make one, but had since forgotten about them. Then my dear friend Rachel made one and the memory was sparked and so here we go…
The above is a topsy-turvy pot stand.
Rachel made a great tutorial if you want to take a look…http://www.pbase.com/rache
if not, here is the skinny.
You take a 5.5′ piece of rebar and drive it in the ground. Put a 10″ pot on first (just put the rebar through the hole), fill with soil and then layer your other four 8″ pots in a topsy-turvy manner. Fill them with soil and plant. I put some news paper down first thing before I drove my rebar in so I can mulch around it to keep the weeds down.
Yes, folks… I have a toilet in my yard. A toilet filled with flowers no less. And I just love it!
I am thinking I will fill the tank with water also and plant in the back too. I planted some dianthus, lantana and alyssum and one more thing (can’t remember right off) in there. Yeah, it is a bit goofy and weird, but it suits me well. So there. 😉
Here is my little ole goodwill find from last year. It was a light brown wicker. I took to painting it yesterday to make it the same whitewashed look as the rest of my porch furniture. Quick, easy and very satisfying. The GORGEOUS pot of begonias beside it help even more. 🙂
I hope you have a beautiful day.
