I made this long planter to use as a Spring Centerpiece after giving a little makeover using patio paint.
Hello friends. I hope you’re having a great week so far. I wanted to give you a little update on hubby’s health. On my last post I told you that he had been admitted into the hospital again because they found a clot in his lung. He stayed there for three days because he needed oxygen but Glory be to God, he was discharged on Sunday. :). He surprised me by showing up and not telling me. I was in so much shock and so happy to see his face.
He’s on a stronger blood thinner that he injects into his belly everyday and his oxygen has been steady where we need it to be. I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for your love and prayers.
Before all this happened I had ordered these cute little ferns from the nursery and I picked them up yesterday. During this time of year, bringing
plants in gives me a sense of hope for a new season. I planted them in this pretty long planter that was all beat up and old but I gave it a fresh coat of paint and now it looks just like new.
I used DecoArt’s Patio Paint Outdoor in Wrought Iron Black . I wish I could show you the before but unfortunately, I deleted the photos prior to uploading them by accident. 🙁 But I promise you this paint is amazing. It’s an outdoor paint that is water-based but weather proof. It doesn’t need a sealer, it won’t crack or peel and it leaves a beautiful satin finish.
I’m so mad at myself for deleting the photos because I wish you could see how chipped and rusty this container was. I gave it a good scrub and a little sanding to remove the original chipped paint. The coverage of this paint is incredible.
I love how cute the little ferns look in this planter and I think it’s perfect for winter and spring. I will probably will be moving this to the patio once it’s warm enough to do so, but for now, I love it here on the table.
Such an easy way to bring a little life into your home during these hard winter months.
I covered the dirt with some moss and I think it looks so much cleaner and tidy. I’m so happy with this little makeover!
How do you cheer up your long winter days?
Once again, I want to thank you for stopping by and your prayers. It means so much.
See you soon,
Jesus answers prayers. What a nice surprise and love your plant project

Lucy so glad to hear your hubby is better – phew.
Are those new dining table chairs? Where do you put all the excess furniture and styling products you use – you must have a ton of them 🙂
So happy to here hubby is getting better. I can get so angry about this virus and treatment but I will stay positive. I’ve used Deco Art patio paints to paint some of my garden creatures/statues and it works beautifully. The ferns are lovely. What a nice way to brighten up this cold winter. You always have such wonderful art and crafts to share. I enjoy it. Take care of yourself.
Continued blessings for your husband’s recovery progress! Thanks for the green cheer today, needed that…Hugs! 🥰
So glad to hear he is home and getting better. Been sending good thoughts and prayers your way.
This is beautiful like everything you do! Thanks for sharing your good news and something pretty!

A long planter spring centerpiece filled with fresh flowers and greenery can add a touch of natural beauty and charm to any room. To spread its beauty and let people know about it someone must run an online campaign about it on, for which digital marketing agency is very much fruitful.
