Let's talk about planting roots, moving and freedom..

This time of year I always feel maxed out.
 
Girl guides is wrapping up and as much as I love those little critters.. - they SERIOUSLY wear a leader out. 

Not to mention it's fundraisers, camp planning, badge ceremony mayhem for these next couple of weeks. 

Also did I mention.. 
Our house is for sale???! 
That's all I can say for now, basically because that's all I know! Hahah it's for sale.. We will see where that leads! 

So that's a whole other dilemma, keep the house in showing condition with 3 cats, a dog and a baby, greattttt. 

And let's just throw into the mix me returning to work in two weeks. 

I can't, I just can't even. 
So the beauty posts have been light lately but bear with me :)) 

Today I'm going to share a tiny little DIY, (I know I've been the DIY queen as of late) seriously though this is beyond easy. 


First, save all these ugly baby milk cans (or any old can!) for a rainy day. 


Second, oh hey these are cute spray paints. (I have a spray paint collection growing, but spray paint! You can use it for everything!)


Third, spray cans. Light dustings so you won't have globs, allow drying time in between until satisfied with colour. 

*tip spray paint really travels! Watch out for clothing and shoes. Do not spray red while wearing crocs... Unless you enjoy being called chicken pox feet. Uh huh!


Where are we at.. Fourth?? 
Bring inside and say to self "Awww these turned out pretty"


Fifth, collect plenty of rocks and stagger them at the bottom of the tins for drainage. 


Six, buy pretty, pretty succulents and transfer into tin pots! 


Seven, sit back and enjoy your beautiful new garden which will surely entice people to buy your house! 

Whooo hoooo someone buy our house so I can have some new blog material!! ;) 

Happy Monday bloggy friends!! XOXO

      The struggle, we can spend all day making the place shine and 24 hours later it's a disaster zone again.

  15. It's a super idea! We often need such cute trinkets for house to make it warm and sincere. Last year my aunt planted tomatoes. She likes planting but lives in small flat on the fifth floor. So she used for a planting coloured buckets. I must say they suited to the interior of her balcony. It was really cool!
