Bright Painted Flower Pots and a Deck Makeover Part 1

Share this post

We moved into our new house last year and were lucky enough to have a beautiful deck built right away.  It looks out over the river and is the perfect place to relax in the evening. We put our tired old patio set on the deck and went on with our summer.

This year when we pulled everything out I knew it was time for a face lift.  The first step was to stain it which made a huge difference!  Next up is furniture. A new patio set and accessories can get expensive, and our table and metal chairs are not in bad shape.  So I grabbed some paint and painted flower pots and an old tired metal table to add color to the deck. 

I did purchase two bright chevron cushions with coral, yellow, blues and greens. I used these as my color inspiration for the other pieces on the deck.

I scrubbed and washed these 2 not so pretty flower pots and metal table, then got to work. I chose a bright sunny yellow for the table and a fiery orange for the pots.

This spray paint is awesome, and comes highly recommended. It holds up well outdoors on wood, metal and even plastic.  A couple coats and they were covered, my table and painted flower pots looked so good!

Little Lady and I planted zinnia seeds. By the end of the summer we should have some bright colored flowers to match the pots.

The next step in this deck update is to paint some tired chipped plastic chairs.  B sure to check out this plastic chair makeover.
