Pink in the Garden

Pink in the Garden


Adding color in the garden is usually the task of shrubs, trees, and flowers. The planters and pots usually have a supporting role, allowing bright blooms and foliage front and center stage.  But color can be added in subtle ways, as in these pale gray and pink planters. Perfect containers for small ornamental trees and shrubs. Whether yours are wood, plastic, or stone, you can paint them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® to look like these. Graphite for the base coat. Layer and mix Emile with Henrietta, and add Old White  to accent and create more depth. Color that complements, but doesn’t compete.

I love to use Chalk Paint on outdoor projects. To see other ways to use Chalk Paint outside see my posts:  Weathered Zinc,  Patina and Verdigris,  and  Garden Bench

Stunning….you make if look/sound so easy. Cross your fingers because I am going to give it a try on some old planters while I wait for spring! Thanks for sharing your ideas…Lea
