Walking around my backyard, there is always something waiting to be repainted and turned into something new. Plus, my mom has a ton of succulents growing around the yard (thanks mom) and we all know succulents make absolutely anything look good.
With some paint and succulents this window was turned from drab to fab for $0, only using things I had around the house/ in the backyard.
Step 1: Start out by spray painting (the absolute easiest and fastest way) the window white as a base coat and then let it dry.
Step 2: This step is a long one if you want to paint your window ombre. If not, just paint the window whatever color you want and move on to step 3.
I decided to do a pink to orange ombre but this can be done in any color. Pain the window in 1/4’s, so start with your desired color (mine was pink) and paint the first 1/4 of your window.
For the second 1/4 of the window mix pink with white to create a lighter color. On the third 1/4 of the window mix pink, white and orange. For the last 1/4 mix orange and white. There is no need to wash your brush each time because the left over color in the brush helps them blend together, giving the perfect ombre effect!
After painting each 1/4 the colors should blend easily and look like this:
If you can see the separation of the colors, use the left over paint in your brush to blend the colors together.
Step 3: You will need a weed blocker or some type of mesh to hold the dirt in the wood of the window. Staple the mesh to corners and fill with dirt.
Step 4: Gather your succulents and fill the dirt with your favorites!
Step 5: Hang your window wherever your plants with survive, and don’t forget to water them!
