Porch Planters and An Update

For the last couple of years, I have set out these DIY custom planters on our front porch. Directions/Info found HERE.

After a few summers in the Mid-West heat, they were looking a little ragged. So, when I spotted these copper planters on clearance from Target at the end of the season last summer, I snatched 2 up.

They were originally $50/each but had been marked down 50% off. Any comparable tall copper planters I could find online were WAY more expensive, so I knew that $25 for these was a great deal.
They sat in the garage over winter until it was finally warm enough to plant some flowers and set them up.




The height makes such a big difference.

I also wanted to give an update on the carriage door trim I added last summer.
Here was the before-


Here is the current after-


We only used Liquid Nails to adhere the metal trim and it has held up nicely through heat, snow, wind and hail. The hardware is holding on nice and strong. Click HERE for the original post regarding the hardware and installation.

Hope you're having a great week!
xoxo, S
