Paint-by-Flower Pots

You know that you have always wanted to embrace your inner Martha Stewart. It’s summer, so you have no excuses anymore, kiddo. Try this D-I-Y, or just be inspired by it and repaint/decorate something old and bland from your garage, or a flea market find.

Grab some paint! Cheap, acrylic, dollar-store shit will do the trick. And don’t forget that vintage 1997 coffee mug for cleaning off your paint brushes.

step one

These flower pots are just so dull. Too grandma, not enough KA-BLAMMA!

step two

Paint those suckers neon green.

process

Lies. Actually, that’s a little too cray-cray… let’s paint over that with some blue and make it look like that’s what we meant to do the whole time with some stripes.

drying

Woo! Now give your funky-fresh li’l flower pots a second to dry, and go fetch yourself some ice-cold lemonade with a splash (or six) of vodka. What’s that? You don’t like to D-I-Y with a buzz? Get outta here.

Now this is ~complete~ if you need a place to store your hair scrunchies. But Martha & the Gang would probably tell you to woman-up and plant some green things in there.
