Okay now! So as promised, I am back with part two of todays projects! Oh so much fun!! However, I’m going to keep this one short and simple!! So I'm sharing another great Thrift store find, lightweight metal’ish, tin kinda, cute bones Pedestal container..99cents!! Shut your Mouth!
I swear to you, all I could see when I looked at this was it painted White with some beautiful little pink blooms planted in it!!
Friends, I was so excited, I completely forgot to take a before picture. As you can see I had already started painting it when I remembered. At least you get an idea of what it was.
So, 2 coats of my Behr sample size chalk paint, under $3.00 now when you order it online through Home Depot!! A hammer and a nail to put 3 drainholes in the bottom of it. (Otherwise your plant's roots will rott and your plants die) New knowledge to me!
I grabbed this cute little Carnation and a couple Impatients from a six pack I had and dog gone it doesn’t it just look like that was exactly what it was made for? I had a blast doing this!! Just sharing the steps with you, so you can pick up a 99 cent special, too, and make it into something special for you!! If you haven't already, Please take a minute to go over and "Like" my facebook page... Lots more pictures from all the projects there!! Thank you for joining me and Many Blessings to you all!!
Okay! This is cute, too! Wouldn't have thought of this idea! I probably would have put fake flowers back in it. Sad, I know... which is why it was meant for you!ReplyDelete
I'm with you Leslie, I wouldn't have thought of this either, but it looks amazing.Delete
Really cute planter! I like how you transformed it into something special. Shopping at Goodwill is the best...so much inspiration to be had there. Visiting from Redoux, so happy to be now following! :-)ReplyDelete
Lovely little job! She turned out perfect. Visiting from At the Picket Fence. Would love it if you would share this post at my Make it Pretty Monday at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com Wishing you a grand weekend. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicateHouseReplyDelete
Hey, Kathryn, Thanks so much for your kind words and hopping over!!Delete

Just left your house a few hours ago and Have to say that it was worth the wait to see your finished projects ... still thought the pot was ceramic .... not metal ....WOWReplyDelete

I am so glad that you shared your talent with us at The "Sunday Stop" Party! I love to spend close to nothing and have something BIG to show for it and you certainly did just that in this pot!!! I did not know that about the roots needing drainage so thank you for the info as well. Hugs and have a great Sunday!ReplyDelete
Thanks Bj!! I'm so glad you liked them!! Thanks for hosting the Party!Delete
Yeah, like I said, just found that info about the roots recently...Needed to know, before I killed anymore plants..Haha..
Every bit as cute as I bet you imagined it. What a great idea for those great deals on ugly old containers. I didn't know there was a Behr chalk paint. Do they sell it in the stores at all, do you know? Found your post at Joy 2 Journey. I'm following you now. I hope you'll stop over for a visit to Quirky Vistas when you have time and follow as well.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Liz!! No they don't sell it any of the stores only on-line. Even then they don't call it Chalkpaint. You have to look under paint samples "chalk" and then you've got it!! I was very lucky to have found it!Delete
I'll definitely pop over to Quirky Vistas to check it out!! Thanks again!
Thanks for coming by and for taking the time to say hello and follow!Delete
Well if this isn't creative what is! So clever! :)ReplyDelete
