Nothing a little spray wont fix

After posting pictures for this post, (see picture to left) I noticed that our front porch pots we're looking a bit rough around the edges. Sometimes, when outdoor planters age, they get a beautiful patina, which I ADORE. This wasn't really looking like patina to me though.

Slightly embarassed by the appearance of them, and what our neighbour (Hi Erin!) has been looking at for awhile now, I decided to do a quick fix.

Last night at Lowes I ran into the paint aisle and found this brand of spray paint and this morning I sprayed them. :)

I had used the spray paint brand from HomeDepot (the brand escapes me) and LOVED it. The Lowes brand was less than overwhelming. I'm not sure I would buy it again, but it did the trick. I used 1 full can on the 2 pots, and I also sprayed a fresh coat of black paint on our mailbox, as it too was looking a bit worn.

It likely wont last forever, but for $5.00 for a can, it's something I have no trouble doing each season. :)

Thank you!

Love them!! I agree though that the Rustoleum from Home Depot works slightly better then the Valspar from Lowe's, but in the end you can't really tell the difference, the only difference is in your wallet ;)

Hi Lindsay, curious to find out how you have put the plants in the potters. Looks like you have just laid them in there and with each season you swap them out? I have a Boston Fern similar to yours and looking for a planter to do the same but not sure how.....would love to know how you have set them up inside!!! they look great!!

Hi there just came upon your website from Bing after I typed in, "Blogger: Aubrey & Lindsay's Little House Blog" or perhaps something
similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I'm grateful I found it because your content is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some material
from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.

Thank you very much.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it
can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but
I had to share it with someone!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .

net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on various websites for about a
year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question
which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious
to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd
post to let you know. The layout look great though!
Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2
pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
