tiered polka dot planters

 Hi everyone! I'm finally back after a long weekend break and some relaxation with the family. We had such wonderful and extremely hot weather this past weekend. My family and I spent most of our time in the pool and as a result I have some very hot pink colored shoulders!

I did squeeze in one little project though!

I've been eyeing some painted polka flower pots that Amy over at positively splendid put together, and decided to make some for myself!





I started off by shopping for three planters in various sizes. I also purchased some potting soil and different types of flowers.




I painted the pots in three bright colors and hand painted the white polka dots.

I put small rocks from our garden in the bottoms of the  planters before adding the soil. My daughter snapped this lovely photo of me as I was adding the flowers. 



My completed tiered planter.




My front porch is finally starting to come together! I'm hoping to add a few more touches and then show you the entire porch later this week.

Hope you have a great day! It is storming here with rain and strong winds so I guess that rules out the pool for today!
