Coral bathroom vanity

My kids bathroom has been in a state of limbo for months now {and still is}. I wanted to bring in some color and brighten it up. What I thought would be a quick little makeover has been in the works since November when I shared the new towel holder I made {here}.

Then the holidays came, and then my surgery and recovery. The bathroom sat for months and months. I have stuff lined up all along the hallway outside the bathroom just waiting to be addressed.

Last weekend I got started again on the bathroom by painting the vanity coral {the paint had been sitting there since before my surgery}.

Here she is now...

It's hard to get a great picture I either had to stoop inside the bathtub or on the hallway floor.

The color is Japanese Kimono by Behr.

It is bright and the husband isn't too crazy about it, but I love it! Now I can't wait to get the walls painted and add some accessories.

Painted chipboard planter

I'm back today for a simple and quick project that I recently 
picked up at the Target "dollar spot" for just $3.00! 
I knew this could be a cute little spring project!

All you need is a planter of some sort, paint, stamps, and some flowers.

The planter started off like this...

I removed the jute handles and then gave the planter two coats of white semi gloss paint. I let it dry and then used some foam stamps from my scrapbooking stash to dress it up a little. I reattached the jute handles and added two small pots of flowers. Since the planter is chipboard I remove the flowers when watering them.

About thirty minutes and only $7.00 {$3.00 for planter and $4.00 for the flowers}. 

Thanks for coming by!
