We gave our breezeway a simple
makeover the other day!
It had been painted a
bright blue & white
(not a pretty bright blue either).
I was lucky & found a brand new
can of bright white
paint in our basement (never opened)!
I touched up the white wood work & paneling
as well as covered all of the ugly blue!
I was at the thrift store the other day &
picked up the plant stand for $6 as well as the
vintage blue planter for $1. I have had the
vintage deer planter for a long time
but I finally found the perfect home for it!
We are thinking about planting an
herb in it.
I have been looking for a
welcome mat for some
time & have had no luck unless
I wanted to spend a fortune on one
(they are so expensive)!
I stopped by Family Dollar
& I honestly don't always care
for that store but I found a welcome
mat for $5 & the two plastic succulents
for $1 each!!! I took
them out of their original containers
& added them to the planter with
real dirt to make them look real!
It works! I love them & to be honest
I don't have
much of a green thumb! ;)
This summer will be a test! The kids
& I want to start a garden! I will blog about
All in all our little make over was
under $30 including the mid century
chairs that I found for $5 a piece
that are not shown in the pic.
