My dump store finds are back! I love when summer comes around and I can make my rounds to the dump stores again 😉 Ahhh heaven! A few weeks ago I was out with my Mom and found these beautiful vintage glass lamp shades. (they are pretty easy to find a thrift stores too!) They were all pretty dirty but dirt never scares me 😉
A little Dawn was all they needed to clean them right up.
I loved that they were all different shapes and shades of white and thought they’d make the coolest looking planters. I picked up a variety of different wood and ceramic pieces while I was there too that would work as bases for the planters.
If you missed the other piece I did for the 150th, you can see it here…I used a Fusion Mineral Paint in Fort York Red with a hint of Ash (just to make it a tad less bright) to make some wobbly stripes. Each base had some natural curves so, with a tiny brush, I free-handed the stripes using the curves as a loose guide. To make sure the new planters didn’t separate, Epoxy around the edges kept the pieces securely together. A little distressing, dirt and some white flowers and they were done.
How fun are they? I love that they brighten up the corner of one of my balconies and give a nod to Canada’s birthday as well.Are you making anything special to celebrate Canada Day or the Fourth of July?
