Come see my flower pot makeover as I refresh my little front porch for Summer! Turn plain terra cotta pots into beautiful topiary planters!
Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Last week was my birthday so I took a little time off to enjoy my sweet little family! My husband took the kids to pick out cards and flowers and took a little video for me. It was SO cute! Here are the flowers they picked out.
Aren’t the colors so vibrant and pretty?! I just love tulips! Last week on the blog I shared a little update on the home! Click here to see the recent progress. We have a meeting this week and after that, sheetrock will go up!
So today I want to share my little porch refresh that I did for Summer. I basically skipped right over Spring. HA! My little porch barely gets any sun, and I always have a hard time finding any plants that will do well in my pots during the Spring. So I wanted until I could grab some ferns and caladiums before I spruced it back up!
Flower Pot Makeover
I’ve wanted some tall round planters, but my goodness flower pots are expensive! This walkway and porch are also pretty narrow so I decided to keep what I had and give it a little makeover. I had painted the pot black last year, but decided to lighten it up this year. You can watch the video down below to see how I achieved this concrete look. I do like how it turned out and think it brightens up this little spot. Do you?
You might remember the large DIY bird nest I made earlier this season for a Spring tablescape. Well I decided to repurpose it and use it as wall art for the porch! This little project was so simple. I took a wood panel, painted it with blue buffalo check, and then used a command hook to hang my nest. So simple, and a nice way to add a little color and dimension to the brown brick wall!
This little bird that has the old key wings is from Marigold Trading Company. I have several of their angels and I love these little birds too!
This little bunny usually sits here on the porch to greet us when we come home! I love this little guy and usually change out his bow with the seasons. Should I give him a blue bow to tie into the blue on the wall? I might have to do that in a few days!
Topiary Flower Pot Makeover
The topiary on the front porch came from Walmart this year. I loved it so much I went back to get two more to use inside. I thought two of them would be so pretty on either side of the mantle. And of course once I had the plants, I needed pots to put them in. I grabbed two terra cotta pots from Hobby Lobby and made them over using chalk paint and Iron Orchid Design paper clay moulds. I love how they turned out! You can see how I made these in the video down below too!
I’m planning on putting my big church painting back up here soon and I think I will put the topiaries on either side of it. I wanted to do one last little house refresh and maybe a Summer tour before we put this place on the market. And if not before, I’ll share a full home tour before we move when everything is picked up and put away for showings! 🙂
