Well- in typical fashion I decided after I planted this faux watering can I decided I wanted it painted blue to go with some of my pottery.
I had the can on the right (Brilliant Blue) but wanted it a little deeper to be more like cobalt blue. The little "Short Cuts" can (Forever Blue) was spotted while browsing at the hardware store and I thought it was the closest I was going to come to cobalt blue. It's really small and didn't go far.
I wrapped the plant with a grocery bag to help tuck the plant in and then some cardboard finished it off and it was ready for paint. A quick shot of paint and I was committed!
Since we had a lot more of the brilliant blue we chose to cover it with that for a good base.
Dan likes to paint so I'm always glad to have him do this part. Though the Brilliant Blue looked good it wasn't quite the color I wanted yet.
Here it is painted with the final coat of Forever Blue. In the shade it looks pretty dark but in all actuality it's just what I wanted.
You can almost see the blue pot down below- the plant is covering it up quite a bit now.
The deck is the next thing to spruce up. We are behind on projects!
Sorry about the low grade pictures- used my cell phone instead of the real camera.
Now with my other blue pots I feel I have a theme going! I know it's a small no biggie project but it made me happy since I stare at it from the kitchen and it was bugging me!
