WELCOME!

So . . ., you've finally found the perfect place, lots of storage, nice size rooms, all the extra amenities. But, then you're told "no painting and no making holes in the walls"! You feel all your decorating plans going out the window. What can you do to make the space your own.

Well don't despair. There are many ways to get around the restrictions and limitations and I am here to share the ways I've overcome them over the past 18yrs.

I hope you enjoy my tips and will also share your own. I'll also be sharing some of my on going projects. Once again . . .
WELCOME!!!

Dull to Color Planter

Hi everyone,
Thought I'd share a quick brightening up of a little planter I've had for years.





 I liked the weathered look so didn't want to paint it all.  Thought the brick red and aqua went well together.




 Not a major makeover but definitely an improvement and pop of color.  What do you think?
Hope you're all having a good week.  Until later .  .  .  .
