DIY Painted Chair as Plant Stand How To.
How to turn a drab old furniture into something new? This is an old chair, painted and used as a plant stand.

My love for plants, planters and my patio makes me do these things. And I enjoy every bit of it. My last DIY post focused on reusing and recycling, you can see it here. So here’s a slightly different tutorial post.

And in sync with that, here’s my pictorial post on San Francisco Pride 2015, our second visit to Pride Parade and the fiesta that follows.

Meet Ms Melony

Watermelon Painted Planter
A summer-cooler planter, Melony 🙂

Summer is here. Temperatures are soaring. (I hear on Monday it will be 90 F).The sun seems to be shining right on top of our heads already. But then it IS summer!

This spring I decided our patio needs a makeover. And I wanted to achieve that by indulging in what I am obsessed with now – painting terracotta planters or pots.
