Tag Archives: making over a fake plant
Do you ever have a bazillion things you NEED to get done, but your brain gets distracted for a split second and you’re off giving a fake plant a makeover? No?! Crap, I’m weird.
In the midst of running around the house like a lunatic today prepping for a huge business dinner party my husband and I are hosting tomorrow night, I decided to hack apart this fake thing…
Why?? It was my sanity break in the middle of my crazy day. Do you have an item in your house that just bugs the crap out of you, but for some strange reason you hold onto it? Well this fake plant has been with us for 6 years and has bugged the crap out of me for that long. I bought it at Costco. Today was the day though this guy got hacked. So I threw this poor unsuspecting-outdated mess- of-fake-plantness in our backyard, ripped him apart and got out my new favorite gold spray paint.
Just one light coat later and I was left with a golden trophy!
It’s just a notch shy of being gaudy. I like it!
For now I decided to fill this golden beauty with a real plant, but see white tulips in the near future.
I have to say this guy has come a long way.
If I drank champagne, I think this would make a lovely champagne bucket.
