Whoa, it's April already!
The months are flying by, but this is the only time of the year when I like that happening... The cold weather slipping away to welcome the warm, sunny days. Ahhh, beautiful!
Yes, we had a beautiful and very busy weekend, and in between all the things I could accomplished was this little project that I'm sharing today, and that says to me: Spring is HERE!
A couple weeks ago I stopped by one of my latest favorite vintage stores in the area and found
the old soda crate below.
I loved the crate with all those tiny terracotta pots...
BUT, the thing I didn't like that much were the dried flower bouquets in each pot, sad. :(
So, I just removed them and cleaned the entire thing.
Then, using the dry brushing paint technique, where you add a tiny bit of paint to the ends of a paint brush, dabbing it on a paper towel to remove excess paint, the terracotta pots were painted to brighten them a bit.
Little succulents were bought at the Home Depot. Real plants are always a winner in my book. ;)
I left those pieces of dried moss on the edges of the pots, for the added texture they provide. But, now that I'm looking at the pictures I'm doubting that decision. Should I remove them?
Well, I'm going to leave them alone for some days and I'll see. Over all, I'm loving this easy makeover, so fresh, and green, and Spring-like!
