I made use of these old lanterns I had outside that used to have candles in them...
Yikes... They were not looking so hot... they also used to have glass but 4 kids and a couple skateboard incidents later the glass was just a memory.
I cleaned them and then spray painted them with Krylon in blue ocean breeze. Spray paint has come a long way and if you know what you are doing you can get a great finish.
I then added some small pots with begonias to finish the look. Begonias are ok with shade which is why they will work in my new lantern planters!
I know, I know, pretty simple but the DIY summer is just beginning...
And in other news... look what I just scored on CL for $20!
It is going to be my laundry room door! It has the original wavy glass. The glass is gorgeous but I need to let light in but not the laundry view so I was thinking about frosting it? Has anyone ever done that? Please give me your thoughts and or advice if you have! This is DIY for another day... baby steps...-A
bye, bye birdie,
