My Little Blue Flower Pots

I am so enjoying all of the materials that are available to re-do things.  I know

it is fashionable to be DIY, but gosh it is also just plain fun!!  Everywhere I look

in my home I see re-do's!

I am really wondering what I saw in these two yellow flower pots...

Perhaps it was the design?  

The color of this flower pot wasn't  even particularly flattering to the plants!

So when my husband began cleaning out the corner of the garage where my 

flower pots are tucked away, he asked me if he could throw these two yellow

flower pots away.

I gasped, because I am a bit of a hoarder with my flower pots-you already

know why from my previous posts.  However I did agree something 

desperately  needed to be done.
12-oz. Gloss Brilliant Blue General Purpose Spray Paint

I knew that spray paint was going to be my choice for re-doing these flower 

pots. I also knew that I loved blue!  Who can resist blue?

What I didn't know was that there were so many glorious colors, shades

textures and finishes.  For $3.97 I was able to have two new flower pots.

So, now that I have discovered the joy in these happy colors, I feel certain

that I will be able to find other little flower pots to brighten up.

Do you have any re-do's waiting for you in a corner?

  4. You are the queen of color! I am always scared of paint...guess I should get over that!
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. I think I have a pot like your blue one, but mine is green. Aren't you loving the advent of spring?

  6. Hi Jemma,
    I love how that turned out. And now you've given me some ideas for what I can do with my not-so-pretty flower pots! Did you need any sort of special spray paint, for the particular surface of your pots?
    Hope your day was beautiful!

  7. Hi Jemma,

    So nice to meet you!

    There's something about 'blue' that makes me very happy...oh yeah...red! I cannot resist these two colours when they are together, as they are in your masterpiece of a flowerpot!

    Looking forward to taking a little tour of your beautiful blog!
