You know any post that starts out with a picture of spray paint has to be good-right?
This beauty is called "Mediterranean" by Valspar.
Oh-I think I love it. I am looking around trying to find more things to paint this color.
So....this is what I did with it I cut a hole in a chair from a yard sale. The chair cost me $2.00!
(Who am I kidding-my hunny cut the whole)
I so could have, and I was going to, but he wouldn't let me.

Then I stuck a pot of flowers in it.
I love it!! My dad says it looks like a porta potty-so, I guess it has two uses, if push comes to shove.
Who knew my treasures could be categorized in Emergency Preparedness. :)

I know, I am little late in doing this. There are lot of fabulous bloggers who have already done this-I just never found the right thing to use.
Until Saturday.
This beauty of a tray was 50 cents!! (the guy even threw in a bucket of nails for free-a girl can never have too many nails-right)
Anyway-the center if a mirror-
I just got out the yummy butter color spray paint and my second best friend-chalk board paint.

This is what it ended up like. I so love it! It looks super cute in my kitchen.
My kids want me to put the menu on it.
I told them maybe.
If I do this, I will be much more obligated to make dinner.
No girl wants to be tied down like that!!

Hope you all have a great day!!!

PS-I have new kits listed in Etsy!

Porty potty? Kind of. Birthing chair? Yes. Maybe I will have to borrow it cause I don't think most hospitals around here have those ;) Love your creativeness as usual.

So cute! I'd forgotten about the chair planter idea. Arg. We just had our city's bulk trash pick-up day with tons of free chairs and I was racking my brain with how I could use them. I knew I should have just grabbed them! Anyhow, so cute. Love it and thanks for visiting me today :).

I just wanted to swing by an introduce myself! I appreciate you visiting my blog and am glad you were inspired by my Weight Watchers Wednesdays. I have been dragging my feet as of late. I have about 50 lbs. more that I want to lose,but 29 so far is pretty darn good. I will put a pic up next week and give some of my favorite tips for you, so check back on Wednesday.

Love your chair. I have almost the exact same one, but it is green apple. LOVE it!
