colorful garden hoses 1 & 2 | 3 & 4 | 5 & 6

one of my favorite ways to make our home cheery is by looking for alternatives to everyday boring items… like garden hoses! why have a drab ‘ol green garden hose like everyone on the block when you could brighten up your lawn with one of these beauties? my favorite is this robin egg blue one, i think using it would make me feel all martha stewart-y and turn watering the garden into an exciting even which would in turn surely make my plants grow more abundantly (right?). i think so.

diy: felt craspedia

diy felt

this is quite possibly the cutest (and simplest) diy project i’ve seen. as featured over on design*sponge, kate takes your through this simple project step by step. just think- no wilting flowers, falling petals or browning water! granted, i will always keep fresh flowers around the house, this would be a great way to keep something fresh in those spaces where you can’t get to as often. like on a bookshelf or in a guest room? i can hear my wool roving calling my name as we speak, so i’m off to get crafty!

from drab to fab

yellow planted potter

isn’t this a happy project? i ran across this simple diy drip planter over at old brand new (originally found via the lovely papernstitch) this morning and have already written it down on my project’s-to-do-list! i actually have this exact type of tree hanging out in a totally drab planter by my couch as we speak. i’m going to say that by the weekend it will have some much needed added color. click over for more pics and instructions!

before and after: planter table

i found this little tray table at the thrift store for $5. i love it’s little tapered legs and rolling wheels!

after painting it with yellow zig zags, it’s now a little planter table and adds the perfect splash of color to our dining room.

i used love natalie’s grow print as inspiration, can you tell?  though her shop is temporarily closed, {update! her shop is now open!} you can see all of her watercolor paintings and diy projects on her blog- love, natalie.

i only bought one shade of yellow paint, but mixed up a little batch of it with some added white to make the lighter color.  i first painted the top light yellow, then used this technique of painting chevrons to tape off the design.  after painting the whole piece darker yellow, i removed the tape and finished it off with a top coat.

did you notice my little collection of blue bottles? i got inspired by johnny miller a while back, and have been collection blue and green bottles and jars ever since.  mine needs some work to be anywhere near as beautiful as his, but i think it’s pretty catching the afternoon light.
