You guys remember when I talked about my plans to give my backyard patio a makeover? I am slowly but surely making progress and I'm excited to show you a little bit of what I have done and gathered so far. My first priority was to add some COLOR.
After I did some online shopping and made a rough plan of what I wanted to do, I went to an At Home store. I'm going to be sharing my haul (what I got) from At Home in my next post, so keep an eye out for that! For now I just want to say that it was a great experience and they had way more stuff in-store than I had seen online. Here is a little sneak peek though; these honeycomb were on clearance for $4 each! I am dying to show you the rest, but it will be worth the wait!
I decided to stick with the same color scheme that I had planned - but I definitely wanted to do a little bit of DIY too. After all, this is an HGTV Spring House challenge! To start with, I decided to use these super cute colanders as succulent planters! They go perfectly with the pillows I found at At Home and I was able to get almost everything I needed at the store. I did buy real plants though so those are from a nursery. Here is the EASY tutorial for making colander planters.
Heavy Duty Scissors
- Cut planter liner to fit inside colander bowl.
- Carefully remove plants from original container and, if necessary, remove excess dirt so that it fits into the colander.
- Pack dirt around the sides of your plants.
- Display proudly!
See? SO easy. I love the way the colanders look, and they were very inexpensive - $10 each! You can find some really cute, stylish colanders at At Home.
Sooo... are you as in love with this project as I am? It is so easy and literally everyone who has come to my house since has commented on how cute they are. I already feel like the patio looks 100% better, so I can't wait to put it all together. Here is one more sneak peek of my At Home finds --I just can't resist!
Don't they match perfectly with the succulents and colanders? It is all coming together!
Until next time, friends!
