DIY Flower Pots

I have been on a long and exhausting search for a cheap, cute flower pot (this may be a slight exaggeration, it was about a day). I searched and searched and couldn’t find anything I liked, in a price that I liked. So, obviously, I had to result to gold. As you know, I have a bit of a love affair with gold (see here and here), and I decided that my plants should get to enjoy some gold too. These flower pots are super easy to make and look great.

Materials: flower pot and gold paint pen (I got both at Michael’s)

First, I came up with a pattern and drew it on paper, so I could figure out exactly what I wanted to do and to practice the design. Then I just drew the pattern on the pot free hand. I prefer a more natural, organic look, but if you prefer straighter lines, you can tape sections off. I chose a geometric pattern since my flower pot will be holding a pencil cactus, but you can do whatever your heart desires.Β  photo copy 3

And that’s it! Easy, right? I’ll share another photo in a few weeks once I get my cactus in there.

Keeping It Simple

I couldn’t help but buy a little something when I was at Terrain a few weekends ago. I fell in love with these mugs, with their organic and simple shape. They would make any drink look good.

One Pretty Place

Terrain

There’s nothing like a pretty place to give you inspiration. I was able to go to Terrain a few weekends ago and it was overflowing with rustic charm. I mean, just look at these chairs hanging on the barn. At my grandparents’ barn, the only thing hanging off the sides are cobwebs.

They have a cafe where you can get yummy food and drinks.

I want something in my house that is this green color.

We got to peek in one of the sheds where a wedding reception was going to be held later that night. I love the combination of the chairs and those tables.

If there is a Terrain near you, I highly recommend that you stop by.

A Quiet Place

I was looking back on some old photos that I took and I found this one below. It seems so peaceful and quiet. There is something about it that stills my thoughts. It’s crazy to think that a simple photo is capable of expressing so much.

A Look Into My Weekend

This is how my weekend looked. Ok, maybe it’s how it looked a few weekends ago, but better late than never, right?

weekendingI picked up this lovely blue chair at a used furniture store for only $30! What a steal! It looks very similar to the shape of this chair, but wayyy cheaper. Of course I had to jazz it up with a pillow and some fur. Then the next day, I got some serious rest and relaxation at the beach. I’d consider that a pretty successful weekend. In reality, I’d call any weekend at the beach successful.

How was your weekend? Any fun finds or adventures?
