If you happened to see my last post featuring my front porch, you may have had a sneak peek at this little project. I love being able to pull off makeovers on a budget, so when my friend Rachael from This Is Our Bliss asked if I’d like to participate in a dollar store DIY challenge, I couldn’t resist. But I have to admit, coming up with a project using only dollar store items isn’t easy! To further complicate matters, we also had a theme for the projects, which is red, white and blue.
I found a pretty blue flowerpot at my local dollar store (I forgot to take a before picture of it), and decided to paint stripes white stripes on it for the Fourth of July. I used painters tape to block off the areas in between the stripes.
When I removed the tape, my lines weren’t totally perfect, so I touched those up with a small paint brush.
It’s still not 100% perfect, but I am okay with slight imperfections, they add charm right? I added a small American flag and some white impatiens to complete my dollar store DIY project.
If I had more time, I would’ve done 3 of these and used them as an outdoor centerpiece.
Be sure to stop by and see what my friends created with our Red, White and Blue dollar store challenge!
