Updating my front porch decor

November To-Do List | Queen of Everything

Since Black+Decker gave me the push I needed to finish a few projects around the house, I’ve been excited about all of them! I woke up yesterday morning and headed straight to Home Depot for supplies. I decided to check off the 2nd item on the list – paint pot on front porch and make a rolling platform. My front porch decor is seriously lacking, and I feel like it’s time to step up my game since our house looks like the “Scrooge” house on the block.

I had to work quickly, because, well, it’s COLD here in Texas. We’re not used to this! I wiped off the pot and got all of the grass and dirt off of the bottom of it, and then waited for it to dry.

2 coats of Rustoleum 2x Key Lime spray paint later, and it looks like a totally different pot! It brightened everything up, which was just what my front porch needed. (Above picture is after the first coat)

I also made a wheeled platform for the pot, since it is so heavy and difficult to move. I used one of the leftover pieces of wood from my lamp, painted with with Rustoleum 2x Dark Gray spray paint, and added 4 wheels onto the bottom. Simple, and took about 15 minutes after the paint dried!

My original plan was to get a huge pot of mums to set in the pot, but they were all gone – I waited too long to buy them. Instead, I picked up a rosemary tree and it looks Christmasy AND smells great. Bonus: I can use it on chicken! If I can manage to keep the rosemary alive, I’ll just keep adding seasonal flowers around it as the seasons change. For now, I’m just going to add some greenery around the rosemary pot.

So, 2 things checked off of my list! I’ll be adding them to the “Your Big Finish” page, and if you have completed any of YOUR projects, you should add yours too. There are many prizes to be had, and I would love for one of my readers to win!
