I have a bad habit of constantly updating and changing my home. As a teenager and young woman I would rearrange all the furniture three or four times a year. These days I am not physically able to move china cabinets and beds by myself, but I can still lift a mean paintbrush.
I like my home to be monochromatic, with splashes of colour that are easily updatable. Last year the family room and back deck were decorated in green accessories, this year I they are yellow and white.
Herman recently bought me a new silhouette machine : I chose some plant care hints to stencil on the front. I really like how they turned out.
How to refurbish flower pots:
I took three clay flowerpots. They were painted in green and black chalk board paint; they lasted two winters stuck out in the garage and certainly needed updating.
It took four coats of white external flat paint to cover the black chalkboard paint.
Once the paint was dry, using a silhouette cameo create and cutout “I’m Cooking”. Remove the excess vinyl, apply the transfer paper and attach the lettering to the freshly painted pot. Your done.
Repeat this process for “I’m Thirsty” and “Feed Me”sayings. I think these pots are clean, bright and cheerful.
The sayings will prompt me to remember my blossoms.
