Entryways can quickly get neglected...I know ours did this year! I don't have a "before" picture but our planter's and lights were faded from the sun and elements. So I set out to spruce things up around here with simple spray paint, and ferns!
This light below was gray and faded. I spruced it up with Rustoleum's hammered metal spray paint.
I love flanking entryways with ferns! I purchased these plant stands from The Home Depot for under $20 and are the perfect solution for giving simple ferns and other potted plants more height and presence. And these plant stands are a great inexpensive alternative to taller urns which can easily start at $75 and up!
I also used ferns this year on our deck and screened porch area. I just love these charming, low maintenance and shade loving plants! And at $12 each, they offer a big focal point for not a lot of money.
