For this simple DIY you need:

  • Planters of your choice
  • duct tape
  • acrylic paints of your choice: it largely depends on what pots you are using. Clay would need something else. But i used plastic. So acrylic paints worked fine for me.

Instructions:

  1. Tape the planters in pattern of your choice or just random. Like I did!

And Paint!!!!

Now i have always had difficulty with acrylic paints almost on every material. So in this case too when I used paint brush, it gave me really dreary lines all over with a total yuck effect! So i dropped brush and used cotton swabs instead. As you can see in this picture the different strokes I got while using the two.

Anyone else having this difficulty?!?!

Let me know your solutions or maybe the riight way of using acrylic paints πŸ˜€

So cotton swabs are a winner for me!!!

And this is the end result!!!! I looooooove the pop of color and the life they are bringing to these plants! And my window sill!!

I let them dry for a few days!! before peeling the tape off! Well it was more out of procrastination than any other reason. But when I did peel, they were completely dry and whenI peeled them I had to line the tape with a scale where the paint and tape were meeting. Just to separate them, otherwise it was the paint off!!

That is all the work I put into this project!!!

Have a fantastic day everyone!!!!

Girls room makeover : Before

DSC_0035DSC_0036My daughters room has been neglected for loooong!!!! i cant say how long!! lets just say its a dreary place with half ass projects.. It started out as a well intended room to serve the needs of my pre schooler daughter and an infant boy. Thus it had two feature walls one in pink which had the headboard side of the room and the other in silver grey which had the tv and the storage side of the room.

Bad purchase this bed with the hideous headboard and the barbie duvet cover.
