Before Pinterest, when you found an idea you liked, you simply tore it out of a magazine. Way back in 2008, I did just that. I thought it would be fun to make this stack of terracotta pots. It looked easy, affordable and fun.
I saved the picture and instructions to do as a summer project with my son. Life threw us some curve balls that year, so the clipping was forgotten. Every year since, I pull it out of the folder, think “wouldn’t that be fun?” and then for some reason, I never get around to it. Does that ever happen to you?
Well, not this year.
The beauty of blogging is the sense of accountability. I’m telling you that I will do this fun project. Soon. Maybe even this weekend.
I could simple stack and plant the pots as shown, but I’ve decided to make it even more crafty. I saw another cool idea on a design blog using gold leaf to jazz up clay pots. Doesn’t this look like fun?
I’ve never applied gold leaf before, so I’m challenging myself to try something new. Stay tuned.
What do you have planned this weekend?
