Pretty Planters



Terracotta pots? Boring. Something fresh and pretty like this vintage bathtub planter?  Gorgeous but pricy.

Which is a good thing because filling that tub basically constitutes begging the gods to strike my garden down.  I haven’t the hubris to think I could keep that much greenery alive.  Not with these brown thumbs.


Maybe terracotta pots spray painted matte black?  No numbers for me, just a row of clean black mugs topped with frothy green vegetation.



Or some color-dipped cheapies?  In pink!  Or maybe turquoise?


Or galvanized tubs in different shapes and sizes?  An easy, inexpensive English look.

Each image leads to the DIY.  Thanks to all the ladies responsible for breaking me out of my terracotta rut.  Which would you do?

    Eve, that sounds so pretty! I think galvanized is the way to go. Did you drill holes in the bottom?

    I did! A must! I sat each pot on a candle saucer and love the look!
