Now that Spring is officially here, I've got the itch for some DIY projects around the house. I completed my first one last week and I love the way it turned out. I got the idea from the blog Positively Splendid. Hers is a 3-tiered planter...I just can't decide if I want to add another tier to the bottom or create another set.
It looks like it might be complicated, but it's really not. I had terracotta planters from last year that I spray painted and re purposed. I had to purchase the spray paint, the sealant, the dirt, the flowers, and a brick. Most of these things I would purchase anyway around Springtime !
OH! And I can't forget the BEST buy of the whole project: I purchased from Michael's some Martha Stewart Circle Sponges-- they are FABULOUS. I can't tell you how many circles I have hand-painted over the years. I was done with the circles in about 5 minutes for this project. This blog has a picture of the sponges (and some cute uses for them).
I also used the leftover spray paint to paint another boring pot I had from last year (the one in the middle of this picture). I think I've fallen in love with spray painting & can't wait to get started on some nightstands for our guest bedroom...
