It's Another Makeover

I wanted to give our petite porch a fresh new look for the spring and summer months...And after playing around with a few ideas this is what I came up with...

So here is what I did...I added an old chair, some pretty flowers, a little birdhouse and a few other garden accessories. I think I like how it turned out, but.....

This little watering pitcher, which I've had for a while now, is just not fitting in. I was really into sunflowers a few years back, but now, not so much. I think it's time to give it a little makeover.

First, I removed as much of the paint as I could...I was afraid if I didn't the sunflowers would show through when I sprayed painted it and I would end up having to give it several coats.

Two light coats was all it needed.

Then I put together a design on my photo shop program and printed it out.

All that was left to do was to decoupage and seal it. Easy as that.

It actually turned out cuter than I thought it would. Hmmm, I think I might bring it inside instead :-)


Hope you are all having a great week.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.

Hope you come back again real soon.


Hugs and Kisses,

I love what you did to your porch and I really like how you made over your watering can. I like it better now, but then I am more partial to your flowers you use then the sunflowers. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Ana,

I love your porch and how welcoming it looks.
I especially love the way the watering can turned out, looks so beautiful with the bird house and everything.

Enjoy the rest of the week

Niiiiice. The watering can looks like something you'ld find at a fancy-schmancy cottage boutique.
Great job Ana

What a beautiful porch. I wish we didn't have so much dust so that I could have beautiful balconies. We have two, but they stay dirty much of the year. Ugh! Lovely little makeover on that watering can. It is amazing what a little paint can do to transform something. Best wishes to you and yours, Tammy

Hi, Ana,
It is always the highlight of my day when you come for a visit. I love how you decorated your porch, everything so sweet just like you. I think the transformed pitcher is perfect, but I wouldn't blame you for wanting to bring it inside to admire all day long. Have a lovely weekend, my sweet and kind friend~ Vicki
