Revamping Boring Porch Post

Jane H
by Jane H
Decided to brighten up my back porch post. It needed some serious color. So I painted some terra cotta pots, and used wooden mounts to put on the post. Then I added some million bells flowers.
A couple weeks after planting them ( along with my three fur babies)
2 months in!

    I would guess that the buckets have handles and the post has hooks to hang them on. It is very pretty and I will try this. Maybe holes are drilled in the buckets for drainage. Love those furry friends!

      The mounts are cut out of wood and screwed onto post. I salvaged them off of a free standing plant stand that I bought at a garage sale. I think you can buy them or find a pattern to make them.
