Hello Houseologie readers! I am beyond excited to be guest posting on Leigh Anne’s fabulous blog today! I fell in love with Leigh Anne’s work when I stumbled upon her stunning black and white hallway makeover and have been a fan ever since! Now, allow me to introduce myself properly.
I am Tasha and I blog over at Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body. I adore all things DIY and crafty. I blog mostly about thrifty DIY projects as we renovate our outdated home one room at a time, while juggling full-time jobs and raising our 3 1/2 year old twin girls. I hope you will stop by sometime–you are sure to be entertained and inspired!
Today I am sharing a very simple project with you. Don’t you just love it when you find a high style, low cost project that is also EASY?! Well, that’s what kind of project this is!
- One basic ceramic flower pot. I found mine at Ikea for only $3.99.
- Oil-based Sharpie paint pens in metallic gold and silver
1) Clean your pot to remove any oils, dust, dirt, etc.
2) Grab one of your paint pens and start drawing free-hand circles all over your pot. I started with large gold circles. On my second pass, I drew medium silver circles. On my third and fourth passes, I added tiny dots of each color.
That’s it! I am not kidding you when I tell you that this took me 5 minutes. I did it while my twin girls did some painting. The family that creates together stays together 🙂
I love the imperfect, quirky style of this flower pot. It makes me think of some of the black, white and metallic Kate Spade products I have seen, but MUCH less expensive! What do you think?
If you enjoyed this project, you may enjoy some of my other projects! One of my most popular posts is how I totally transformed my laundry room for only $71. And you may also love to see how I transformed our kitchen for less than $700!
Thank you so much for hanging out with me today! I would love for you to come hang out with me over at my blog! Please come and visit me at www.designertrapped.com or connect with me on social media. You can find me pretty much everywhere 🙂
