I also took lots of pictures of things that inspired me to try and make my own version…cheaper…way cheaper! I will share those soon.
My girls found some great things and then we had some awesome food and family fun! I planned on taking pictures of the girls, but do you think I remembered???NO! Shame on me. :( We got home at midnight…and that is the end of the first day…
The busiest week ever needs the easiest project ever, right?This is hard to even call a project, but I am! At the Dollar Tree, I spotted these white plastic pots trying so hard to look like real stone pots, they had a nice pattern and even a rounded edge,
but they still just looked like plastic Dollar Tree pots. Guess what popped into my mind? Yup! “How would those look with at couple of coats of the multi-textured Caribbean or Desert Bisque from Rustoleum?” I brought some home and gave it a try.
I started with a coat o f the primer for plastic. You don’t have to have a heavy coat of it either. Then I sprayed away with the Desert Bisque…I got so carried away that I sprayed all 3 of the round ones, forgetting that I wanted to do one in Caribbean! It doesn’t take much for me to get carried away…
Voila! Stone planters!
Three round for $8.77 and that includes the cost of the paint. I got 3 planters done with one can. The oval was only a $1 plus a third of a can of paint!
Here’s my little “inside secret” I don’t spray all the way down inside…It’s going to be filled with dirt and a plant anyway, right? I just let it fade away as I spray over the edge!
This is SO EASY, even someone who says “but I’m not creative…” can DO this!With or without a very hectic week! :o)
I’m off to the ball field where both of my boys have games at 7:15. Thankfully, the fields are side by side, and I can go back and forth!

‘Til Tomorrow…I hope…
