A sneak peek to how I hope my patio turns out.

This is our blank canvas. This is our patio in it's current dull, boring state.
I was fortunate to get some advice from the Annie Sloan Facebook page and she suggested I buy the Red Primer to paint some of the bricks to make it look old and distressed like in the top picture. My hubby has bought the wood to make the shutters. I will paint them Annie Sloan's "Arles" (yellow). I'm anxious about what kind of plants to buy, I just don't want to kill them and I want them to last all Summer long, any suggestions? This project should be completed by the end of next weekend hoping the weather stays decent plus I will have a four day weekend so I should have plenty of time to work on this project. I'm so excited :)
I'm cooking up some Carnitas and fixins' for my Cinco de Mayo feast today. What are your plans? Whatever they may be, may you savor every moment! Have a great one :)
