Welcome to April, y’all – oops, not yet. It’s tomorrow! Be on the lookout tomorrow for some “April fooling” from friends and family.
I found out this morning while visiting a new poetry author friend on Facebook that April is National Poetry Month. Maybe you knew this already, but I had no idea we had a month for poetry. Consider yourself notified that today’s post contains no poetry. I hope you don’t mind, but I am not inclined…
OK, maybe I am, but not today.
Do you have a door that needs taller pots for flowers or plants? Is your budget running a little tight? Do you want to avoid buying new pots that are decorative pedestals?
Here’s an easy way to transform a regular flower-pot into the perfect sized pedestal urn or planter. We have a pot on each side of our door that’s on the garage side of the house. These definitely needed a lift!
To elevate a flower-pot, you’ll need a pot with a similar bottom diameter as the pot you’re elevating.
I found these old pots in the garage. They badly needed some attention and were very stained, even after a thorough cleaning. Aren’t they gross? (Yours don’t have to be.)
The next step is to paint your old pots to match the finish of the pots you want to elevate.
Let the painted pots dry completely.
Place your newly painted pots upside down and set your planted pots on top. If your pots are polymer material, you can connect them. I recommend joining them with screws before filling the upper pots with dirt and plants.
I didn’t connect my pots. This is a case of do as I say do, not as I do.
I like the fact that I can move my pots without much hassle – one section at a time.
If you have small children (or very large dogs), I would definitely recommend connecting the pots together in some way.
Do you need taller pots beside any of your doors? Do you have old pots you could use to make a pedestal?
See, I resisted any rhyming. 😉 I hope you have a happy and fun April Fool’s Day tomorrow!
