Its time for another round of #SwapItLikeItsHot friends.
If you’re not quite familiar with it, it goes a little something like this: on a budget of $15 or less scour the thrift store, flea market, garage sales, etc. to find something fun, or interesting, or a hot mess to send to someone else. That someone then gets busy painting, sewing, drilling, mounting, whatever and then shares the makeover on their blog. It’s a fun concept and I’m happy to be part of it for a second time.
Alrighty so you’re most likely popping over from Chic Little House so you know my swap buddy this go round was Katrina. Those of you who’ve been with me for a while and follow me on IG know Katrina and I are actually really good friends in real life! We live in the same city and spend lots of time together so this kinda felt like cheating a little. She knows me very well so when I received this wooden bowl from her I’m pretty sure she knew it was gonna become a planter. And if she didn’t, now she does. #surprise
Here’s the thing I’m not super crafty. I can’t sew, don’t draw, have no idea what a Cricut is, don’t scrapbook, can’t crochet, really I could go on…but what I CAN do is paint. And hoard plants. And collect pillows and other gorgeous textiles, but that’s neither here nor there. So when I received this little bowl I knew right away how I wanted to tackle it.
A little spray paint, some washi tape, and a maidenhair fern would do just the trick.
A perfect addition to my growing plant collection.
Oh and also for even more swap goodness make sure you pop in to all the blogs below to see their creativity in action.
