Painted Planters

This very simple and fun DIY project will let you customize your planters and give your greenery a festive home. All you will need is acrylic colors, a brush, finishing spray, and perhaps some tape depending on the type of design. If you’re feeling artistic, feel free to follow your intuition and freehand a design. If you need a little more structure, consider these fun ideas from YouTube. We’re loving the clean lines you can accomplish from using tape as well as the fun feel of splatter paint.

DIY Herb Wall

One of our favorite aspects of spring is the bounty of fresh flavors it welcomes. Bring the outdoors in with a fun and vibrant herb wall that will not only refresh your space but provide ingredients for spring meals. We are loving these projects from Balcony Garden Web that are perfect for sunny kitchens or even spacious patios.
