Hello everyone! I thought I'd share a little update that I did on our pot holder plant stand. If you remember, we made this repurposed plant stand last summer, and I've enjoyed it on our back deck since then.
After I placed the topsy turvy planter on a table on the deck, I have been thinking that I needed to refresh the plant stand with some colors that would better coordinate with the colors of the plants in the planter.
All the peach and orange colors just brighten this little spot.
You can see how nicely the flowers have filled in since I first showed you this planter.
So I was inspired to paint the rims of the pots on the stand orange. That's Juicy, our outdoor kitty beside the stand!
So I mixed up some paints that I had until I matched the color of this plant called flying colors. I even painted the flower on the Welcome sign the same color.
I am loving how well the color around the pots looks with the flowers in the topsy turvy planter.
I moved some of the pots down to the deck railing to see how that color would look there.
Our chair planter sits down there and I'm thinking that I'll give it a fresh coat of the orange paint that I mixed up. Luckily, I saved some of it! Those are white violas in the chair, but they need to come out. Can't you just see the chair planted with the same orange flowers that I put in the topsy turvy planter? (Please ignore the weed in the planter beside the chair!)
So I'm thinking that I need to paint more pots like this because I am loving this beautiful, summery color!
And do you see how I attached the pots to the stand?
Hi, I love this idea. What type of paint do you use and if I plant herbs would the paint be toxic?

Any chance you would make the plant stands for sale???

I love that topsy turvy planter too. The orange chair and pot edges really pull it all together.

Okay - everything here is so charming and fantastic! I'm working on my green thumb this year; I wish it came as naturally as it seems to come to you. Your topsy-turvy planter is something that I would love to do this year. I'll put it on my list! 🙂
So creative! And, you real have a green thumb, too! 🙂
Hi Jane, Stopping by for another peak at your wonderful planter and to wish & Leo you a Happy Memorial Day weekend!
Jane everything is looking so beautiful, and oh so colorful. Makes my heart sing!~
Such a wonderful DIY project to add a little freshening up to pottery! Your colors are perfect for summer and the kitty looks darling casually standing by. It's nice to see all the flowers!

That is a beautiful color that you mixed up and your pots look GREAT! Isn't it sooooo nice that we are all back outside enjoying our beautiful flowers again?
I love the coral color Jane. So fresh and fun this year. I can't wait to see the back deck with all the changes. Very pretty. Jean
I think the coral/orange thing you have going on is so pretty! I have never seen those pot holders before. I definitely need to go check out what you have in your shop. Some good picks I hope!
Jane, love that pot holder, it is so cute! Yes, the chair would look cute with flowers painted on it!
Jane, I loved your topsy turvy planter from the first time I saw it! Your plant combinations are gorgeous and have filled in beautifully and the addition of the orange on your pots is so cheery! Love your coordinating kitty 🙂
Hi Jane! Thank you for stopping by today 🙂 Your home is so beautiful. You really must have a big green thumb! I do not, but I try lots. I love the colors you chose, not only for the pots, but for the flowers 🙂 Hope to chat soon XO ~ Julie
Already showed this post to my husband. There on his honey do list. The TOP of the list.
Jane, this looks so inviting. Makes me want to come sit on the porch with you. Great idea to paint the rims of those pots. laurie
