9 Planters to Freshen Up your Patio

As you probably know, I'm slowly starting to chip away at updating both our deck and our front patio. They both need a lot of time, love and money, so I'm taking the projects little by little.

I've found that one of the simplest ways to freshen up your patio is with plants & flowers in really fun, modern planters. Here are 9 of my favorite DIY Planters and Planter Stands.
