My favorite Fall colors are burgundy and purple. Not sure if that came about from the Fall asters in the fields where I walk my dog or some beautiful fabric I ran across one time or another. Sure I like to add some orange and maybe yellow but rarely brown. I wanted burgundy planters for either side of my front door, I had some metal ones bought at IKEA and not used, so I decided to paint!
To make the planter look more interesting, I sponged on a darker color with a metallic sheen: Voila! Perfect planters for my fall display. I bought the coleus for half price when annuals were on sale in August, planted the pots and put them under a tree in my back yard and they grew like weeds! (Can’t even see the planters, but I know they’re there!)
