Wooden Window Planter Up-Cycle

Before the snow started to fly, it was this past summer LOL, I went to garage sales with my daughter.

I found a wooden window planter that was only $5.00.

That’s right! Just $5.00!!!

I have wanted to white wash something for a long time and I thought this would be a perfect piece to try it on.

It was weathered and needed a good sanding.

Even though I wanted it to be smoother, I wanted it to keep its slight rugged look.

I mixed 1/2 white paint and 1/2 water and gave it one coat.

I bought styrofoam, ivy, red and yellow flowers to compliment the color on the wall, and used a couple of decorator balls that I had left over from another project.

but …

I didn’t want the wall color to show through so Mr Man went to #Goodwill and bought a mirror for $3.00.

I attached the mirror with standard mirror holders and hung it on the wall.

I love a project that comes together without breaking the bank, don’t you?!

Hugs and make it a great day!
