Front Stoop Makeover - Weekend Yard Work Series

This weekend I worked a little on my front yard. It has been pretty neglected so far this year! Today I'm sharing my front stoop makeover with recycled planters.

Front Stoop Makeover


I had these old, ugly, outdated planters that my neighbor gave me last year.


I almost threw them away but instead I thought I'd try a makeover first!


I cleaned them up a little and spray painted them with some grey spray paint!


I think it made a world of difference!

The plants in them don't look like much right now because they are from the clearance section at Fred Meyer. Have you ever bought plants on clearance? Usually they are just done blooming for awhile so they don't sell because people can't see what they'll look like when they bloom again... or they need to be pruned or something.

I buy them all the time and within no time they look just as beautiful as they first did!


My front door got a fresh coat of barn red paint. The roof is shingled with red shingles so I thought it would look nice to have a matching red door!

When I had my house painted I took off the old, ugly house numbers and decided to paint the numbers on the steps in the same paint color as the door instead!


What do you think?
