Until this past weekend, my front porch had not been given any autumn love. I always feel a little guilty if I neglect the fall season because my mom is the queen of autumn. It is her favorite time of year, and that cool weather loving soul puts up a fall wreath September 1st!
So in honor of mom, I finally ventured out to get my mums. I kept seeing these shiny black pots with white mums all throughout the nursery and I just loved the look. Needless to say, those containers were not cheap. So instead I headed to Home Depot to buy a can of glossy black spray paint. Please note the pots below...clearly I have a green thumb. They needed a makeover, so the girls and I went to work spraying. We covered up the dirt with plastic bags, because we were too lazy to remove it before painting. It worked like a charm.
It was the best can of spray paint I have ever bought, they really look sharp. The pumpkins on the two smaller pots were an afterthought, but it adds a festive, fun look to the porch.
