Are you ready for spring? I am! I couldn't wait to get a few new things on my patio and decided to make these cute planters to spruce things up a bit. A little paint and some plants and your are ready to go.

I started out with 2 cement blocks purchased at Lowes. I cleaned them up with a stiff bristle brush and then sprayed them with paint that was about the same color as the blocks themselves.

I found this stencil at Lowes.com, but anything will work as long as it fits on the block. I cut out my pieces and then attached them using tape. Make sure your edges are down tightly.

I spray painted the whole thing turquoise, using two coats of paint. I also did the sides and back.

I had some number stencils, so I did my second block with our address.

I carefully removed the paper stencils and then sprayed the whole thing with clear varnish. I added some plants and they were all done! You can see more on my blog at HomeontheCorner.com.
