chalkboard

If you read my earlier post about the things I love in our home, then you are aware of my love for fresh flowers!

My problem is, and JR thinks it is rather ridiculous...is that in no way, do I have the ability to arrange them. I buy a normal bunch of stemmed flowers, and they end up being chopped down to 4 inches tall because I can't find the right vase for them! Last wknd I had all of our vases out, and I went one by one until my wee flowers looked now like a tiny weed. I have no talent in the floral dept...

Thus, when I saw this spectacular and oh-so-cute idea, I knew it had to go in my to-do file!



I can't remember exactly where you can buy these, but 1) There is no "bunch" I must arrange, I can just plant, water, and go 2) The name thing is super super cute and 3) This is totally a DIY project!!

One of my favorite things to do is take a product and find a way to make it myself! It's way more fun like that!!

So my idea is to buy your average clay pot at a Home Depot or whatever...

Next, buy some Chalkboard Spray Paint such as this---->

Give it a coat or two, let dry, and for my favorite part! The name! Everyone in your family can have their own flower pot! One day when we have our babies, I'll make them one :)

I'll try one out with JR and I! Now I just need to see if I can keep it alive :)

That's my DIY for the day!
