What happened to April?

The last time I shared with you, it was March, and now it’s May.  I cannot believe that April evaded me like she did.  Come to think of it, this entire year has been moving along pretty quickly, and I really think I feel some type of way about it.

So back to March.  I suggested  31 things that you could do in the month of March (a pretty extensive list), and I did that mainly because I myself had planned to do all or most of those things, and guess what… I did do most of them, and I had so much fun doing them.  You’d be surprised to find that what I am most overjoyed about was completing my first NCAA bracket and correctly choosing 3 of the final 4 teams: Oregon, Gonzaga, and UNC.  And of course… my team won- GO TAR HEELS!  At any rate, I do plan to share with you some of the things I did with the hope that you will be inspired to try some of them.  I can say for sure that making a checklist chock full of things that I either enjoy doing or that added to my life in some way made all the difference.

Today, I’m going to share one of my favorite creations inspired by Martha Stewart (I love that lady). This little project got me super excited because it was super cheap to create: the tomato cage planter, an easy upgrade and beautiful addition to any living space.  All it took was some tomato cages (Home Depot) some 18 carat gold spray paint (Michaels), and a bolt cutter (borrowed from my neighbor), and a little time.  In fact, I created one planter in less than 15 minutes.

 

My Living Room: My plants need to grow a little bit more, but I love the look that the planters add to the space.

 

If you like the Upgraded Tomato Cage Planters, just know that you can make them.  They are what I consider on a scale from 1-10 a level 1 DIY!  Unlike, my chairs also shown here.  They were a level 10 DIY, but I’ll tell you all about that DIY fail in a later post!
