Well hello April! When did you get here? Being it’s the beginning of the month means it’s time for another Junk Revision Challenge!
This month I have come up with an easy way to update those old flower pots I had sitting in my garage.
At one point I had reddish colored accents in my living room, but have since phased all of it out. Now, I have a bunch of red flower pots that just don’t fit in with any of my other decor. I decided instead of replacing all of them, I would cover them with something more suitable for my new style.
I picked up an old book at my local thrift store to cover my pot with. I tried to find one that had a brown, old look to the pages. I didn’t want bright white. Sorry Dean Koontz, your book was the perfect shade for this project.
To make the paste, I mixed equal parts Mod Podge and water on a paper plate. I then dipped my pages into the glue and stuck them onto the flower-pot.
After your pages are glued to the pot, let it sit overnight to dry. Once dry, you can add any embellishments you would like. I had these metal rings I have been trying to figure out what to do with. My mom found them for me and just knew I would love them!
To attach the metal rings I just dabbed a bit of hot glue onto the back and secured them to the pot.
The next step is to add a beautiful plant to your newly up-cycled flower-pot.
My new flower-pot fits in perfectly with my industrial shelf. If you would like to know how I made the shelf or the accent wall, you can check out my entryway makeover. For more details on the metal boxes, check out this post on how to make industrial boxes.
Do you have any junk lying around your house that could use a makeover?
