Projects like this get me in trouble with my husband. The makeover is so compelling and beautiful that I find myself constantly shopping pieces to magically make over with some powder coating and new strapping. Trouble is, reality sets in and I almost never get things finished as fast I hope.
If you are the same, perhaps leaving the dirty work to experts is a better idea. Potted, an LA based garden and design shop took care of the dirty work on this little set. I think they did a fabulous job — the fresh tomato red is a near universally good garden color to spice up a variety of different garden schemes.
