Hey guys! Sorry for the lack-o-posts lately, but I have something pretty major (aka- time consuming like having another child) in the works and I promise it’s worth the wait! At least I hope so.
So in my quest to make over this brand new builder blah house I’ve come to the realization that NOTHING is off-limits. If you don’t know this about me by now, the fam and I recently moved to one of the most expensive places to live in this glorious country of ours…California!!
Sorry for sounding like a broken record if you’ve hung around a while. But, it’s worth one last mention because it’s so true. Everything is pricey in California…(oh dear, here she goes again!!)…gas. groceries. taxes (have I ever told you that when you buy ANY piece of lumber from a certain huge home improvement chain you will be charged a tax to each said piece of lumber. Even though each said piece of lumber has already been cut and processed you are still charged at the check out stand a tax of $.04 per piece. I know…wah, wah, wah, but boy you start to think twice about conservation once you’ve lived here a while!
So my point to that rant was that I don’t just say these words in black on my blog to try and impress you…I live it everyday! So I have to get creative with my DIY or I will go insane!
I am not endorsed one penny for this post; I just love these little guys and want to share. These oil-based paint markers come in every color and they dry super fast. You can use these on glass, wood, plastic, you name it!
After 10 minutes of coloring in the lines (literally) I was done!
I stuck a succulent from the backyard in this glamed-up pot and called it a productive DIY day!
My happy little pot now sits on my bathroom counter top alongside my recent DIY artwork. I think I’m living out a childhood rebellious period because I’m drawing on things I probably shouldn’t. Click here to find out what I mean.
