Thanks to everyone sharing all their wonderful ideas it's got me finally started on my side yard. I painted the border of an old rug I had out back for a few years, I painted the top of an old kitchen hutch thing Orange that I picked up at a yard sale for 5.00. I made the butterfly & frame idea from another post with my twist on them & then I started painting a few pots & Margarita glasses & I must say I'm hooked and want to paint all my old plastic pots. I still have to paint my window trim, put together my small greenhouse, move the fence back & decorate a few more things, but I'd say I've gotten a pretty good start. Oh I also made a summer wreath for the front door.
Summer wreath for front door out of flip flops from Target I got for free when they were on sale & with a coupon. Total cost was $2.00 for flowers from dollar tree everything else I had.
The sign I made as you enter the backyard.
The first pot I painted.
Some of the ideas from Hometalk.
Some more pots I painted yellow with polk a dots & orange.
One of the Margarita glasses painted yellow bought these at yard sale for .25 cents each.
The complete project for now & the old rug I painted orange.
