Spring Has Sprung: Painted Flower Pots

It’s true. Spring has sprung! And flowers are blooming everywhere I turn. Literally, driving on the highway I’m seeing gorgeous purple flowers in bloom. It’s my favorite part about Spring, that and sundresses πŸ™‚

Over the weekend, I spent some time potting flowers for my front steps. It was so lovely to be outside in the sunshine. My mom and my little lady supervised while I did the dirty work. It was great quality time – the perfect way to spend beautiful weekend days…

Painted Flower Pots

Since I have a little bitty porch that doesn’t fit more than my door mat, I thought these painted flower pots would be perfect for the steps leading to the porch. I wanted something a little more colorful than your regular terra cotta planter so I painted them!

Color Block planters

With a bright and bold color scheme in mind, I wanted these pots to really pop.

For a color block look, I spray painted them all gold, then taped them and painted one section with color. I love the coral, white, and green combo!

The coral is my favorite. It really pops.

I can’t tell you how happy these sweet flower pots make me. I seriously smile every time I walk up the steps to my front door.


And if there is anyone who likes these flowers more than me, it would be this girl… She absolutely loved sitting on the porch smelling the flowers. Which actually translates into picking off every little bloom. It was really fun just watching her new discovery.

One last look…

Now that I’ve got the planting bug I think I will get my vegetable seed starters in order this week. Stand by for that!

Now tell me, have you planted anything yet?

(And can I just quickly share a funny blogger moment: while taking these pictures to share here on the blog, my neighbors were going on a walk as a family as when she got to my house she looked at me so strangely and said “Oh I thought you were photographing your daughter.” Nope, just my plants! LOL)

Have a great day friends!!

  28. these are lovely! I have a question, I am trying to spray paint something that is an identical shape and I can’t seem to get it to tape off because it’s round and smaller/larger on each end. Did you tape these off to paint them, and if so do you have tips on how to best do that?
