These days, a sense of accomplishment and productivity are much sought after, but rarely seen things in my world. Of course watching my kids grow and become their own little people is rewarding. Even though most days I wonder where time has gone, there's not exactly a finished product at the end of the day. Often, making sure that everyone is in tact and not in tears or time-out at the end of the day, is an accomplishment, hence, the blog and my puttering. When I'm craving a little instant, or almost-instant gratification, I roam around the house and yard, looking for a little project to settle my restlessness.
Below you'll find the before and afters of my garden pot transformation, the latest victim of my
procrastination attempt at productivity. It was on the to-do list that I shared with you last week, and one of the few items I ended up checking off. It's nothing earth-shattering or even terribly original, but a simple, inexpensive project that enhanced my yard and mood.
|Before: Old garden pots looking tired and needing a face lift. Hopefully no one says the same about me any time soon.|
|After: Clean, colorful, and transformed, with spray paint.|
|It's safe to say that I have a thing for blue; I'm always drawn to it first. Luckily it was one of the few appealing colors my local hardware store had in stock. I used Krylon's Fusion Spray Paint, which is formulated for spraying plastic. It couldn't have been easier, or faster as it dries very quickly.|
|Luckily the blue, and white work well with my existing pots. All in all, much better than the before and I only spent about $12.|
