Polka Dot Flower Pots

When I think of Summer I think of lazy afternoons and evenings on my front porch. I love my front porch but every Spring it needs a lot of work. I like to change things up a little every year, so this year I started with the flower pots.

I went through my paint stash and pulled out my favorite happy colors.

(Valspar Pistachio, Rustoleum Summer Squash and Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze)

I adore polka dots. Polka dots are to me like chevron is to others. They make me happy! Since they can seem a little juvenile I try not to use them too often, but I’m pretty sure my porch needed some polka dots this year. I used a 1 1/4″ circle punch to punch the polka dots out of vinyl.

Then I just randomly stuck them on the pots. Super simple, but really awesome (and happy).

I’ve had this stand for a few years and it sits by my front door.

Now I need to paint my bench and chairs, maybe paint the table, paint a door mat, plant more flowers, and get a new rug. I guess I should get busy.

How have you been sprucing up your house for warmer weather?

    I LOVE the polka dots! And all the pots in your planter? Just absolutely perfect. Now for some lemonade with a paper straw and good friends, a nice breeze and a summer night- you’re all set. 🙂

    I love these, Leanne! They are adorable, and I love that they can be duplicated by anyone. I might need some of these for my front porch too.

    Leanne, I totally love your pots! I can so relate to your comment about polka dots to you are like chevron to others. I LOVE polka dots. Chevron is finally growing on me tho. Seeing your pots makes me want to get out the spray paint! So cute!
