More DIY planters from flea market finds
I have been collecting wooden doo-dads from Goodwill for a while now. I take them home, paint them white and distress them. And then, I wait for inspiration to hit. (or throw them in a box, leave them for a year while waiting for said inspiration)
A few weeks ago I found these monsters that are about 14 – 16 inches tall. They are heavy and solid, and looked like someone’s wood class lathing project, but, me being me, I couldn’t pass them up.
I cleaned them up and painted them black, then yellow, then white and distressed them to see the layers. And, if I do say so myself, they cleaned up great! But now, what to do with these giants.
Finding and painting these lovely pieces made me dig out the rest of my collection. What to do?
And, what to do with these cute little succulents I picked up? That’s right, more planters!
Once I painted all the remaining pieces, I played around with placement. I kind of like the succulent planters and the wood pieces randomly arranged.
But then, inspiration. How adorable is this tiny little cactus on the little candlestick?
This is kind of cute, but I really wanted to use the giants.
So, after playing around with these for a while, my son came along and put these three together. A perfect, adorable little succulent planter vignette!
