A Better Wall Planter

After Before


I had the hardest time getting the yellow the shade I wanted it to be on this planter! Up close, a brighter Yellow can still be seen in the cracks. First it was too pale, then it was too bright and now, I'm tired of painting! Ha-ha!

My porch is going to have a Yellow, Pink and Green theme. Green being the house color!

I worked myself silly yesterday but today, I'm off to get my hair cut and then home to color and highlight it and then REST!

I hope you all have a great Easter week end! see you on Monday! ♥

Wow! The planter does look nice redone! It is also painted SO nicely!! I would have the colors overlapping each other;)

You have a great Easter too!

Those colors look great on the planter!
How much does a haircut cost in the US these days? Here it's expensive I think (right now the equivalent of about 60 dollars). For now I just trim my and the girls hair myself and we have simple haircuts. Would be nice to see a picture of you when you´re all done with your hair. :-)
I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend too!
Love, Rika

You know where I had fun tonight is scrolling down to see your girls and all the cute vintage cards and those birdhouses are soooo cute. Are they for sale Holly or did you just paint them for your own home? Way too cute!
Were in the middle of one of those famous wind, rain and cold chilly nights tonight. I'm tucked upstairs sipping tea by the computer.
Blowing pixie dust all the way across the country to you.

Hi Holly... I love how your wall planter turned out. So cute. The yellow with the contrasting white makes is 100% prettier than just the plain old brown. Have a great Easter!

Hi Holly,

I haven't been here in a while, and I'm sorry. I'm buried with activities such as a show on the 17th, and a wedding for my oldest daughter on May 22nd. Your planter looks great, and I love that color yellow.

Happy Easter,
