I'm super excited to be teaming up with some of my blogging & Instagram friends to bring you a new monthly challenge called "Thrifted & Re-Lifted". Each month we will challenge ourselves (and YOU) to makeover a flea market find or garage sale item that cost you under $30. How fun!
Please be sure to visit the blogs below of my fellow co-hosts to take a peek at their fun & inspiring makeovers!
Everyone has a set of these black flower pots don't we? Although Michigan isn't quite warm enough for flower planting, I recently spotted these planters at Salvation Army for a whopping $2.50 each. I looked past their boring drab black color knowing I could give these babies a makeover and call them "my own".
I washed and rinsed both planters and started painting away with my favorite paint color "Swiss Coffee". I painted two coats on each planter and waited for them to fully dry before breaking out the black Sharpie to draw on my sweet flowers:)
After drawing the flowers onto each planter box, I used blue craft paint to fill in each petal and finished off with a dot of white paint in the center of each flower.
Believe it or not, these chives lasted all Winter long out on my deck! I totally forgot that I left them outside and was so happy to see them alive once all the snow melted!
I knew they would be a perfect addition to my new white painted flower boxes.
I couldn't be happier with how my planter boxes turned out. What a great transformation for less than $7.00!
Be sure to share your project below, I'd love to peek!
