Which way is the beach?
So I have had this shelf for YEARS and it has been in almost every room in my house as it has lost it's popularity it ended up on the back porch holding plants. And then I found out about ORB spray paint (oil based bronze) and once again it has been brought back to life. It looked so good I moved it to my front porch. The truth is not much inside my house needs decorating so I have to do the front porch! :)
I love this moss stuff, Hob Lob, plastic but looks like the real thing. I hope the birds leave it alone!
I am loving succulents all of the sudden. This one looks like it is reaching out to me. I'm not sure they will be happy on the porch, if not I know where to buy some fake ones! :)
This little birdie told me it needed a new home. By the way part of this project was taking down a big shrub that blocked our front porch. I found a robins nest in there with 3 little eggs in it. I'm feeling so sad that I took the babies from her. I left it in the bush next to the one I took down, but she has not returned. I didn't know I was taking her home. Bird sadness. :(
Can you believe this planter is from Walmart, I want more, more, more. So pretty. So here is my challenge. Take a look around your house at one spot you want to decorate. Think about what you would like it to look like. If you have no idea go and grab stuff you aren't using or grab some of your favs. Go from room to room and just take one things. Put together a color pallete that you like, group things together that are similar in style and see if you have enough for your space. I took way more outside than I needed, tried to see what I had the most of to tell my story. Put things you love together and you will love the finished product!! Look for different shapes, sizes and textures and make sure you have things that are tall, short and everything in between. Have fun!!! If you don't like it, start all over again, it isn't permanent.
Here is my next redo. I got it at Goodwill for $7.99. I hope to work on it tomorrow!
