French style additions are something I am focusing on
a lot around the house while I am home and have the time this spring. With Texas’ wonderful 70 – 80 degree spring weather I decided to add a new look outback on the back patio with a little spray paint…
It all began with this little hanging basket I found when I exchanged the first plant stand I had bought at Meador’s Nursery.
Since I ended up with a pretty big credit, I was able to buy a smaller plant stand which suited our backyard porch better, this rusty brown hanging basket and some plant food and potting soil. A good exchange!
A few windy days and five cans of matte black spray paint later the rusty and worn benches were fixed up and look great with their French park look…
Here is the new plant stand and it is just perfect for our needs. I realized with the larger 3-tiered stand that it eliminated the seating area I had created and that bugged me. The other problem it had was that none of the larger pots fit in its bottom and middle sections ~ that was absolutely necessary. So, this one is much better.
Now this area is pretty much how I’d like it except for a few minor touches and a really big project involving a lot more paint and sawing ~ but that’s for another day!!!
I’ll share the whole patio with you next week when this month’s Pinterest Challenge goes live but for now enjoy the view…
