We’ve all been crazy for pastels now that spring is here, but I thought it’d be fun to give the patio a colorful spring makeover too! I’m used to going to Michael’s and Hobby Lobby for my diy needs, but all of these supplies actually come from Home Depot! A few succulents (the easiest plants to maintain!), some planters and a simple coat of paint. I’m a sucker for the classic red door but this has me considering me a brilliant blue door instead!

Will you be dressing up your patio this spring?
