So I had these little neglected succulents that really kind of needed a new home. It’s pretty much the only plant that I don’t kill. Usually.
I’m in the middle of my office redo, and would really love to see them there. So we found some plain jane pots & decided to spruce them up for a fun, eclectic vibe.
Here’s how we did it.
We gave them a fresh coat with Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace in eggshell.
And then broke out this super fun pen that we scored at our local craft store.
Side note: The smoother your coat of white with this, the better… I totally couldn’t decide what I wanted to do because apparently I have major commitment issues, so I had about five coats and it got a little gloopy… But I basically started drawing shapes on one side, and filling them in.
In the end? We had these fun little pots in gold and eclectic shapes. We did the same thing with the little pot on the right… only adding polkadots instead of triangles. This gold leafing pen is kind of addictive. Pretty soon, you may see it on my fingernails. And on my children’s faces. Or something.
From plain to pretty… Tada! A fun little accent for my upcoming office! I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a space of my own. It won’t really be my own, because I live in mom world… but we will totally pretend.
