I love these hanging shelves I put up on our back porch. I decided the hanging shelves would look great with some small pots and plants. I found these terra cotta pots at Home Depot for $1.29 but knew they needed some TLC. I am not a fan of the bright orange color (as seen above on the left). I have also never “aged” terracotta pots before but knew I wanted them to actually “look old”, not look like they were “painted to look old”. So today I am going to share how to age terra cotta pots.
Oh my gosh. You know when you have an idea in your head for a DIY, but you are afraid that it might not work? I have been so nervous about my DIY milk paint coffee table. I found two perfect items (milk paint and tin ceiling tiles) that I truly believed would make a perfect coffee table. Fortunately, the idea became a reality and I absolutely love it.
A few years back I saw a photo in a magazine of a headboard made from an old door. I loved it and knew some day I would make one for our master bedroom.
When my older sister was planning her wedding a few summers ago, I told her I wanted to host her Rehearsal Dinner. I really wanted to make it special and I felt the best way to do that was to create the perfect setting. (Of course good food is important, but I wasn’t worried about that. Cooking for 50 is the easy part.)
The bookshelves in our family room needed a lot of help since they were way too dark. I mean the first tenant of farmhouse style is all white everything, right?
