As much as my heart wants to get some pretty Spring plants outside, my head knows that it's still a bit too early!  Even though we were in the 80's yesterday, our temps are forecasted to be close to freezing at night this weekend.  So, while I'm waiting for this roller coaster weather to even out, I'm spending some time plotting and planning what I want those pretty new plants to go in!

These black and white striped pots are still some of my faves.  They were super easy, all I needed was some tape and spray paint.

I bought 3 of these concrete resin urns 9 years ago when we moved to this house, and added some glimmering detail with gold metallic paint.  I love how it accented the scallop along the top of the pot.  I'm sorry to say that 2 of these finally bit the dust (mostly due to previous hail storms), but the lone survivor is still hanging on!

I've rounded up some other fantastic outdoor planter projects for you from some of my blogger friends.  Whether you're ready to plant succulents, herbs, annuals, or anything in between, we've got you covered with some cute container ideas!
