Do you Foursquare? I said Do you Foursquare??? Most people are like, what’s that. Foursquare is an App on your phone where you can “check in” to any place that you visit and get information on that place or find places to go visit. Example, a restaurant, store, monument, facility, or the middle of no where, etc. You can +add any location you want & make it a Foursquare check in spot. Example: I started by adding Bliss Designs my company as a check in place. My husband is obsessed with Foursquare and added My Blissful Home, so the rest of our family started adding, My Blissful Patio, My Blissful Golf Cart, My Blissful Kitchen, My Bliss Front Porch, My Patio Bliss, My Blissful Firepit, and so on and so on. So the reason this Blog became ‘Living on the Bliss’ is we are literally “Living on the Bliss”!!!
I have shared some of my Blissful Front Porch and other Blissful places of my home. I’m going to share with you how I put together the My Blissful Patio, and all the colorful pots and plants we added… Ready???
I started by of course, shopping at Lowe’s Home Improvement, where else??
We shopped again…
We shopped some more…
So I decided not to buy any new pots for the plants but to dig the pots we already had, and had been hiding from our neighbors because they were “rechid” as my teenagers call it.
So first we started out with all new soil.. We bought new potting soil and “Black Kow”, cow poop, sorry I promise I wore gloves and washed my hands when I was finished, REALLY!! Mixed in some soil conditioner also. I took all the pots into the backside of our lot and started getting crazy with the spray paint. I bought bright yellow, orange & green. I just took my time and sprayed even slow coats of spray paint.
Black Kow, makes everything grow!
I found pots I forgot I had… I placed them on a painters plastic and elevated them on whatever I could find.
I decided to paint this iron plant stand I forgot I had. It’s so cute!!
I had already painted these plant stands so I just changed out the pots with some I had painted..
I planted all the plants after the pots dried.
We added this great Trellis and planted plants that will eventually grow and climb up the sides and over the top.
Can’t wait until they grow….
We found this amazing Palm Tree at Lowe’s… Love the tropical feel it brings to the patio.
WHALA…..”THE BIG REVEAL”
I’m so happy how it all turned out. Comment and let me know what you think…
