Well, it's only a few weeks away from the beginning of Summer but I'm finally feeling like it's Spring around here in the  PNW.

The weather is starting to pick up and we are getting some rather nice days, so I'm finally able to put some of my indoor projects on hold and starting up on some outdoor ones.

I've only started with my front pots but I have 5 big pots of flowers to fill for our back deck. Yikes! Flowers sure aren't cheap, but they sure are pretty.

I recently painted those black pots, they were light green. I think the black really makes the flowers pop.

Speaking of black, I am totally digging black fences right now. I have seen a few on pinterest and I'm trying to convince the hubs (Hi, Honey! :) ) to let me paint ours black.



Not sure that's going to happen but I'll continue to dream about it. I just love how the green shows up so well against it and with our plants and flowers I think it would look so good.

What about you? Would you do a black fence?

I'm linking up to Best of the Nest today to share my Master Bedroom makeover. Hop on over to see what everyone else is showing off this month.

Have a great weekend, and hopefully I'll be back soon to share more outdoor photos.


  1. Stacey, I have had black fences on my radar for a very long time, and like you, have yet to convince hubby! Good luck with your convincing. I agree, I think they are stunning.
    Happy weekend,

  2. Stacey, your planters look SO pretty - I love those cheerful pinks and purples you chose! Also, please girl, paint your fence black. Your inspiration pics have me swooning! I am a big fan of black and if I had a fence I might be running out to paint it this instant…..instead of going to bed :) Thanks for sharing at BOTN (and by the way I couldn't comment the other day….?….seems to be fixed now!)


Your comments mean so much to me!
