Makeover Monday

Good Monday morning everyone! I have one question ~ why do the weekends fly by so fast and the weekdays seem to crawl?? It just doesn't make sense! Seems like I just left work on Friday afternoon and I blink and it's time to go back on Monday morning! Oh well, might as well make the best of it I suppose. The new management company takes over today and I am sure there will be plenty of fireworks before this week is done! Should be interesting!

For today's makeover, I am sharing a project that hubby and I worked on together. I had been wanting some country looking planters for a few house plants I have so hubby decided to make me some out of some scrap pieces of wood he had lying around. Here's what he came up with:

He made me two different sizes and I just love them! But I felt like they needed a little primming up so I got out my red and cream craft paint and some sand paper and went to work. Here's what I ended up with:

I love the way they turned out. I haven't had a chance to re-pot my plants yet, but hopefully I'll be able to get that done this weekend.

Well, gotta run for now. I hope everyone has a great Monday!

Until next time. . .



  1. Donna, it felt the same for me too when I was working! The weekends would just totally fly by!
