Here is another installment of the Outdoor Spaces event! I have at least 4 more posts after this one. I hope you are getting some inspiration from this and I can’t WAIT to see the ideas you link up to Fridays linky party.

Idea #4 Re-purpose items!

Look at something in a new way. One object can be used in many ways. Think outside the box and you can create unique decor. This ladder was actually the ladder that was used in my Better Homes and Gardens photo shoot. I sanded it up, sealed it with Helmsman outdoor sealer (made by Minwax) and decorated it with some fun flower pots. This would even be cute inside!

 I love the look of flowers and plants next to something white! It really makes it POP!

Since I am a little behind, I am hopefully going to post another idea today. There was an awful wind storm over the weekend that made it hard to do an outdoor photo shoot. Come on Mother Nature! Don’t you know I have a blog to run ? :P

    This is so darling! I was just reading your Better Homes & Gardens post where you said you painted your ladder and I was all motivated to go paint mine, but it’s one I actually use inside the house, so I will have to look around for an old junky one to paint and put outside now! :)
