Planty Projects: DIY Bright Summer Pots

You already know how much I love succulents. What you didn't know is that for months I patiently searched Charlotte for my latest succulent obsession - Burro's Tail! I originally spotted this plant in a Ballard Designs catalog and thought it was so unique and pretty. I finally found a pot of Burro's Tail a few weeks ago for $10 at Home Depot and had been admiring it in my kitchen while I've hunted for the perfect pot!

After stumbling across the striped pots by Hi Sugarplum! I knew I had to make them ASAP! So back to Home Depot I went to grab a can of yellow spray paint and then to IKEA for a few pots.
 I love how they turned out.

  1. Gorgeous! What a great idea. I love your porch rocking chairs - looks like such a relaxing place to sit and read.

  10. If you find them missing from your porch, you'll know it was me. I LOVE yellow and those are seriously GORGEOUS!

    It really is a shame I can keep pets alive but not plants. I thought there was supposed to be a progression.

  19. I am simultaneously attracted to/freaked out by succulents. They are pretty but have this weirdo texture and give me heebie jeebies. Love love those pots! Couldn't have turned out more perfect! Just like sunshine :)

  20. LOVE. I actually have about 5 of these exact pots in a cabinet in my laundry room (I bought a bunch years ago and used a few in my old office). Now, just have to decide on a color {the yellow is ahhhmmmazzzing, but I have orange accents on our patio.... I know, surprise, surprise!}.

    Super cute, as usual... I'll be over for some porch sittin' and cocktails this weekend! Deal?!
