I've been eating my dinner out on my patio this week - plus I've been BBQing, taking photos, and even did a couple craft projects out there.
I was jonesing for some color-blocked planters after seeing this and this. I picked up a couple of plain terracotta pots at my local dollar store. Then I raided my acrylic paints for my favorite shades of the moment, including chalkboard paint. I painted the pots freehand using foam brushed (like these).
This is such an easy and inexpensive way to add color and personality to my patio. I think I've got my creative juices flowing again.
