Fresh, Easy, Economical Accessory Updates
Spring really came on strong in my Zone 6 garden. Bright green foliage, and vibrant blooms emerged after our mild winter. Unfortunately, my garden object d’art looked quite sad. Fading, peeling, and rusting accessories were not acceptable. So, do I pitch them into the garbage, or refresh, and reclaim? Let me show you some of the items that have been reinvented with nothing more than cans of spray paint.
Lime Green transformed the sconces for the wall. The cone mesh vase is filled with aquarium rocks and painted green too. The plant is a fuchsia and I have it hanging in the front tree with dappled shade.
These troughs were really ugly with peeling paint and ripped and torn cocoa liners. A little sandpaper and a can of white spray paint and new liners, and I’m proud to have visitors to my front door see the dragon winged begonias and coleus.
An old rusty rake and hoe were repainted to make up this collage on the fence. The orb is an old softball screwed in from the back and a small shelf has a birdhouse that hubby made.
This is our ‘Greeter’.
This fish is the lime green and can be purchased through Winchester Gardens at http://wgardens.com/products/category/53-fertilizers.aspx . Really cute!
These candle holders were repainted in a mellow yellow.
The metal base here was old, rusty, and was originally white. Now, I feel these colors really help tie the patio together with lime green mirror frame and the mello/yellow lamps.
Clear water Blue is featured here.
This ‘frames’ were originally shutters.
Old window boxes add dimension to the fence.
Recycle, refurbish, reclaim, repurpose. Relax and enjoy your space. Thank you for stopping by today.
Winchester Gardens gave me the products in exchange for a product review.
