As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have reached a point in my life where it pains me to throw anything away. You can read here how I re used+re purposed things around our house that were destined for either the trash or donation box.
That being said, I have a small collection of pots that seems to grow exponentially every year. Thankfully I have held onto about 5 of these simple white IKEA pots.
I like the modern+clean look of white, but I think BLACK+WHITE is so much better…

And last, but not least….
These are the bar stools I recently re upholstered. You can ready my tutorial here.
This is such a fun and FAST project. I simply washed my pot with soap+water then gathered up at least 30 rubber bands that were in our kitchen junk drawer:
Next I just wrapped the rubber bands in any which way (I kind of like this look and I’m sure you could use this to hold make-up brushes or pens+pencils):
Spray paint the entire pot inside+out. I think this would also look fab in gold!
If you want crisp, clean lines then you need to use smaller rubber bands. I wanted a “brush-stroke” look so I used rubber bands that were a bit loose on the pot.
Let it dry for apx 2 hours and cut off the rubber bands! I love the way it looks and I can always repaint it when my taste changes.
I know there are a ton of these projects out there, but just wanted to share one more!
