little outdoor projects...

Kimba is having a garden party!
And since you know I have such a green thumb, can you believe I'm joining? :) I did take out a can of spray paint this weekend for some outside projects:
You remember this hanger from my weekend yard sale treasures?

She got a new coat of green and I hung her up on the side fence to hold towels.

I got this decorative metal thingy at Hobby Lobby last year in their garden clearance for 90% off, but wasn't crazy about the color.

Our light fixture was in desperate need of a change out as well:

So, we changed it up a bit:


Love this color for outside.
Isn't this supposed to be a garden party? We do have a vegetable garden, and it's off to a pretty good start. The White House garden pales in comparison, don't you think? :) Er, minus a few hundred weeds or so...

So, if you have a real vegetable garden, is it okay to have a fake plant outside on your table?

Have a terrific Tuesday~

  1. Oooo, I love the green! I would have never chose it on my own, but I really like the way the green pops against the fence and brick.

  2. I used that exact color to paint a metal barn star for above our backdoor outside! It is a great color, and I love it on your new outdoor towel hanger. Great idea!

  4. We are in the process of switching out our porch lights for new ones that are very similar to yours. I love the "decorative metal thingy" hanging under it, I just might have to copy that idea!

  9. As one who has inflicted unforgivable pain upon numerous plants over the last few years, I say fake plants are *always* okay *anywhere* provided they look somewhat real and aren't covered with dust. If you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have known the fern was fake!

    And, like others, I would have never known it was fake if you hadn't confessed!

  14. Fake plants are absolutely acceptable outside. That's also where they are least likely to be detected as fake...
