Renovation: Some Finer Points On Refurbishing

Could not believe these amazing flowers from Family Dollar a few months back. It was the only bunch they had and nearly identical to the 1978 flowers Mattel put out. 

Family dollar flowers with aquarium plants. I have checked several times and they have not restocked these small yellow flowers. 
My toolkit for refurbing planter boxes. A bread knife for cutting the Family dollar  florist's styrofoam to fit into the downstairs planters, garden snips, wire snips, and heavy duty kitchen shears all make this an easy task (just time consuming and requiring creativity and design skills. 

This paint brush is good for dusting nooks and cranies.

Left side is spray painted, ride side is my personal A Frame, unpainted. Big difference, nes pas?
