Window Boxes!

Our azalea bush is blooming, yay!!!


Well, I worked till seven yesterday and thought I could get back on here last night and post but was so tired when I got home so here I am this morning all bright and bushy tailed posting… until tonight when I’m tired again from working till seven:)
Yesterday before I left for work I painted my window boxes which had been white when I bought them at a yardsale for 2.00 apiece but painted them barn red two summers ago. It was time to paint them again some of the paint was chipping off and it wasn’t chipping off in a good way if you know what I mean! I decided to paint them after I had planted flowers in them of course but figured I’d go ahead and paint because they would bug me all summer long if I didn’t. Here’s how they turned out…I ♥ the new paint color on them!
Here they are all taped off, I can’t believe I painted after planting and you can see some of the paint chipping away!

It was tricky but I got her done, actually didn’t take me that long! I also used the paint that we have on our garage door Khaki which I think looks great with the brown brick!

Completed!!! Just amazing what a fresh coat of paint does! This is the kitchen window!P5110818
We have so much more work to do outside or I should say Mr. K does…we have two acres and every spring he goes around with the tractor and wagon picking up branches and cutting trees that have fallen during the winter weather. Here’s a view of the road coming up to our home! Loven my Boston Fern, I have two that I buy every year for the back porch!

Here’s a shot of our ranch home, yep another Boston Fern out front this year, I’m going to try and see if one will survive here. As you can see the bushes need trimmed and new mulch is needed plus I want to paint the door black…so far I’m loving it!

Paint is a wonderful thing. Great update! Love your Boston Ferns, too. They were my mom's favorite!
Take care!

Hi, Rondell! How have you been? I don't blog surf or post like I once did so I have lost touch with so many of my dear blogging friends :(. I'm trying to post more & people may not read but that's okay with me. It's an outlet.

I see you're still working on your shabby decor makeover. It does take awhile to change your decor. It took me so long to go Prim that I can't imagine changing right now..lol I am just enjoying what I have for a change and not making and doing as much.

Hope all is well with you! :)

Your window boxes look great. I hope to get some flowers put out on my porch soon. I'm worried that all the rain we have had will drown them and they are calling for more rain for the next several days.

The Lighter color looks GREAT!

KK said...

Oh yes...the khaki looks great. I love ferns too. They are a porch staple here in the south. I get the mondo fern every year for my porch.

2 acres is HUGE! It looks great, though. I like your planter boxes. I think I need a few. :) Some ferns, too, now that I see how pretty yours look hanging there.

Oh I love your window boxes! I have them on nearly every window of our house too~ I really need to get going on getting them planted for the year! Would love for you to share this inspiration at Feathered Nest Friday - the party is up late due to blogger issues- but it going on right now! :)

LOVE how the Khaki paint looks beside your brick! Great choice. I love Boston Ferns, too. I usually keep a couple out back but don't have a good place to put them come winter. Found you thru Creating a House of Grace and so happy to find your pretty blog! I'm having a blog party and giveaway soon so hop on over to visit me when you get a chance!

Big TX Hugs,
