TheCOLORinspiration for this little " planter project " came from, of all places, my egg collection bucket!
We just had new carpet installed which turned the living room upside down for a few days and brought out all the dust bunnies to boot! I brought the magazine rack outside to give it a quick rinse with the hose and thought, hey, that would make a cute planter! The RED egg bucket just happened to be sitting on our patio table along with some plants I had picked up for our window box on the RED SHED.
I love the apple red especially when I look at it with the various greens of nature next to it. Red and Green are complete opposites on the color wheel. I love to use contrasting colors in decorating and in the garden.
THE PROJECT: I was inspired to turn my once magazine rack into a pretty planter for our deck.
Don't you just love how the green's POP against the APPLE RED?
Spray paint is the best when you are in the mood for a little instant gratification isn't it?
I picked up some planter lining at a local nursery that fit just right into the magazine rack...
I went digging behind the shed in the compost pile for some rich organic soil. Time to Plant! I chose Sweet Potato Vine because I love the green foliage and some tiny Snow in Summerannuals to sweeten the pot a little more!
Hazel and Lacy Lou were a BIG help!
This was a simple color- inspiredcreative recycling project for the garden! What do you have hanging around that you could re-invent?
