Good morning everyone.
We have been busily working on all our outside projects as I know many of you have also. Seems like we get one marked off our list and another 5 or so gets added. The weather has been cooperating these past few days and we have been able to get quite a few done so I have not been able to work on too many projects that are blog worthy. (Who wants to read about raking, weeding, cleaning up limbs - the boring Spring chores?) I thought I would share a very simple solution to a problem I had with you today - how to display my Boston ferns this year.
I love Boston ferns and wanted a couple on our front porch but could not find a way I really wanted to display them. I thought about hanging them as most people do but they are hard to reach to water and the wind dries them out much quicker. So I decided I wanted to put them in urns on the porch. But I couldn't find what I was really wanting in my price range.
What I did find was two of these plastic urns at the Dollar store. These were really not doing it for me but for $8 each I thought I could probably do a little something to them to make them fit in with our porch decor. So I took them home and gave them a coat of black chalkboard paint. Quite simple.
As you can see they look quite different and now fit in with our porch decor. And I think they make the perfect container for a couple of Boston ferns.
I also love how they actually frame the porch by placing them on either side of the rocking chairs. So pretty.
So for very little money and effort I was able to come up with a solution for displaying our ferns. I love when a plan comes together - how bout you? Would love to hear about what you have been up to lately. Tell me about it in the comments below.
