Sprucing Up The Yard With Upcycled Dollar Store Planters

This post may contain affiliate links

I absolutely love the lazy days of summer so I did a little sprucing up in the backyard using some dollar store planters and lots of flowers.  Summer is all about bonfires, grilling, beach  days and pool days, sleeping in, the smell of sun tan lotion and good times with the people you love. Sure the kids can get on each other’s nerves (and mine) but it sure beats homework, tests, packed lunches and running from place to place, right!

We love to entertain so sprucing up the yard is something I love to do every spring.  We have been lucky this year with lots of april showers, you know what that means, all those flowers are just going to keep getting bigger and bigger!

My mom and I found this next piece at a sale a few years ago.
