Do you ever get a brilliant idea all planned out in your head only to have it fail? Well that’s what happened to me. I was really wanting a row of hobnail vases filled with leafy greens running across the stand under the tv. I knew I’d seen all kinds of them at our local Hospice store, so I set out on a mission to get them at a terrific price. When I got there I went right to the place the vases are kept and nothing. WHAT??? those things have sat there forever!!! Apparently they didn’t sell so into the trash bin they went.
I was very disappointed so I had to go with plan B. Paint Mason jar that I already had in the color “Shiplap” from Magnolia Market. I’ll keep the vases on my garage sale list but I’m liking the mason jar look just fine. The pooch and me walked along our tree line and gathered the branches. I have no idea what kind they are but theY last forever in water. I’ve had the same ones for two weeks before I decided to change them out, and I only did it because I felt I should they certainly weren’t wilting.
The old window you see behind the jars is from a garage sale. My bestie and me scored 8 of them for $1 each, all wooden frames with every window intact. SCORE!!! and to add a little more texture I painted two picture frames chalk paint gray and distressed them a little.
I have a new plan for covering up our tv and I’ll be back soon to show you what I’m up to. Don’t forget to follow me on INSTAGRAM to see things before they’re available here on the blog.
