For those of you that don’t follow me on IG, this is Figueroa.  She’s a fiddle leaf fig tree and I’m kind of obsessing over her.

It took me forever but I triumphantly found the right 10in pot.  Anything for Figueroa.

Here is a little close-up of the terracotta planter Home Depot so lovingly provided.

They also provided me with this chalked…matte white spray paint.  I wanted to keep it looking rustic.  A glossy paint would have made everything look too polished.

I lined the inside with tape and sprayed away. I let it try for about 2 hours.

Here we go.  Moving day!

Have a Metallic Easter

DIY, Lifestyle, Photography March 26, 2016

   
So, my wedding was last week!  I can’t wait to post those pix but for now we’ll have to settle for the cutest holiday of the year…EASTER!!!!!  Easter is all about the sacrifices of our Lord and Savior or just an obsession with eggs, bunnies, and chocolate. Well, for me it’s all about creating something obnoxiously adorable…hence, metallic Easter eggs. 

Gather the usual suspects, metallic spray paints (Rose gold, silver, and gold) and some copper nail polish. I chose Penny Talks by Essie.     
Let’s start with our perfect little marble eggs. Get a cup and fill it with lukewarm water. This is important, if the water is too cold the nail polish will sink to the bottom of the cup rather than float on the top. We need the nail polish to float. 


Add your nail polish. I make a little squiggle so a pretty pattern emerges.    

 Here we go!!! 
   
Dip the egg and roll it around a little. That’s it…let it dry, it back, and feel like an artist! 


Take the rest of your eggs to a well ventalated area, nobody wants to loose brain cells, and spray away! I only did one layer per egg but had to allow each side to dry before flipping the egg and spraying the other side. 
  
This is what I ended up with and I’m very pleased. Gilded eggs for Easter!!!!!  

  
Yay!!!!
