WOW! Holy unintended blogging break!
Sometimes a gal just needs some time away from blogging (AKA I'm tired of my current home and don't want to do any projects until I'm moved)!
The hubs and I spent Memorial Day weekend getting moved and settled into our new place. Don't worry, pictures to come eventually. Since we're both working full time, only the weekends are left for DIY projects. I'm also trying to take my time and plan out the whole decorating thing before plunging in, so projects are going to be slow going on this house.
I did, however, knock out this easy makeover this weekend!
I bought this ugly thing from a yardsale probably a year ago for maybe 2 bucks. It's definitely not intended for sitting. The poor little thing is rickety and lop-sided, but whatever, it's cute!
This makeover literally took me about 10 minutes. I tossed this thing outside, slapped on a quick sloppy coat of red spray paint and called it a day. BAM! Instant gratification!
I bought the self-watering planter and the cacti from Home Depot. All of that together cost me more than the chair makeover by itself, but the fun pops of color are totally worth it!
Pretty for sure the purple and pink flowers are hot glued onto the cacti, but supposedly they're a representation of what the eventual blooms will look like. If not, I'll just keep the hot-glued blooms. It'll be our little secret.
You may have noticed all the walls in this house are WHITE! Just look at the gorgeous light bouncing off the white walls - so much easier to photograph, even on a partly cloudy day!
I've probably even overexposed a lot of my photos, but I'm still learning how the heck to use my camera.
I have a MILLION ideas of DIY projects for the new place - so stick around if ya want. Hopefully I'll be on a pretty steady stream of projects for the next 500 years!
