Sprucing Things Up

Our front entry way needed some attention and I love how a few plants can really transform an area.

My mom and I went to Menards and Home Depot, picking up some pots and plants to brighten things up!

And then while, the hubs was out and about I picked up some paint -Clark+Kensington "Coriander" (25C-6) and transformed this:

I love how the pop of green really lightens things up and also matches the welcome mat and the potato vines in the pots!  Now I'm just hoping that I don't kill these plants!

  1. Well done. Is that an old-fashioned molk jug next to the pots?

    1. It is! It used to be my moms and now I have it! I've always been a fan of old milk jugs!
