A little paint and elbow grease!!

I bought these planters a couple summers ago from Home Goods and really like them but they didn't hold up well outside.
My hubby and I had to do a lot of sanding because they were a bit rusty.
They look pink in the picture but they are a deep burgundy red. It took a few coats of paint to cover.
There are 3 planters in each wrought iron hanger. We kept the wrought iron part black.
We have three of them that go in front of  our deck off the kitchen. Not only do the planters look pretty but once the flowers grow it also provides a bit of privacy. One of my favorite things about summer is flowers. I love planting and watching them grow. There's nothing better than the beauty of nature.

There's always work to be done in the garden, isn't there? Love the bright color you used for the planters. Keep those flowers watered- it's a hot summer!
