I am a man of my word. Yesterday, I promised to show you pictures of the final succulent container garden and here they are:
I am quite pleased with how the pots turned out. I used Rust-oleum textured spray paint on the pots to make them look like stone. So for $11 for two cans of paint, I was able to transform two pots I already owned into two large stone-like containers. Real stone pots would have set me back $20+ each at a home improvement store. Using “shopping math” (thanks Sarah for the phrase), I used the money I “saved” and splurged on a variety of succulents to coordinate with the small pot I started last year.
I also freshened up the pots at the front of the house with some new plants…..
With Spring in full tilt, I am now more ready than ever to tackle a big project for my patio to replace the SAD looking potato vines that have claimed residence along my back retaining wall. Details to come! So with Spring in the air, what gardening projects do you have your “To Do” lists?
