Shabby Chic Garden Project Part II

Hello Lovelies!
Last season I showed you pictures at the start of
my Shabby Chic English Garden (click to see) project.
I have a small newer ranch style home.
I would love to have the money to build big beautiful porches,
but with my tiny budget, paints and plants are a more
affordable solution!
I used an inexpensive Wal-Mart paint and a porch sealer to brighten up the basic wood.
Here is a shot of Mr. Romantic adding some collected flea market accents!
The paint has flecked off some...but ohhhh that just makes it more Shabby to me!
Last year I splurged and spent $30 on this
pretty climbing rose, I also bought some magic rose plant food that
was a bit pricey but has really helped this rose thrive!
By the grace of God my pretty rose survived my umh umh "green thumb"
~giggles~

I used some mulch and cheap garden stones to create a path
so I could walk out and water my garden in bare feet.
I found this cute little decorative flower gate at the dollar tree!

Really, I just used alot of imagination, paint, mulch, and flowers
to make this drab spot fab!
Thank you for stopping by!
Please know that I take time to read and treasure each comment.
I will be sharing this with

My Romantic Home

and
Pink Saturday

Hugs, love and blessings go out to all ofLink you!
