I painted and distressed a bunch of terra cotta flower pots. This year, I think I want to try something a little more fun!

Five Things Friday- July 11th, 2014

Whew! Made it to another Friday. Frankly, I'm not even sure how it's Friday already. It's been a stressful week on the home front. My great uncle had a stroke last week, and it's been really hectic ever since. Without going into toooo much detail, he's still in the hospital (he'll most likely be there until the end of the month, at least) and he's a bit better. He's doing some intense physical and occupational therapy to try and regain movement on this left side. Hopefully, with lots of hard work, he'll be able to regain some movement. I'd appreciate any prayers, positive vibes, and good mojo you can send! (thank you!)


Now for something more positive--here are the five things I'm loving this week. Enjoy!

To do: I NEED to make these! I got a bunch of free tiles from a garage sale a few weeks ago. I wasn't sure what to do with them, until now! (Hello coasters with photos from Italy!)

Loving: this notebook (**ahem** my birthday is coming up...)

Listening: to this. Over and over. And over again.

Reading: Just finished this (today!) I can't believe I never read it before. Is the movie any good?

Dreaming: of this. One day.

 

I hope you have a great weekend! We're going to celebrate my great uncle's 86 birthday tomorrow!

My distressed painted flower pot DIY

Remember a few weeks ago when I was in the process of painting my flower pots and I posted the list of my top 10 DIY painted flower pot ideas? Well, I did finish them and I LOVE how they turned out!

Here's a quick little DIY on how to paint flowerpots so they look distressed:

These distressed pots were super simple to make and I LOVE the results!

1. Start with clean, dry pots

2. Spray lightly with Krylon Make it Stone spray paint and wait for it to dry.

3. Paint with your choice of acrylic paints. I used a combination of Martha Stewart's Wedding Cake, Blue Sky, and Cloud and I just dabbed all three colors on the pot with no real rhyme or reason.

4. Once the acrylic paint is dry, take a course grit sandpaper and rub some of the paint off!
