Roeshel's Plain to Pretty Planters

This girl never ceases to inspire me with her projects, so today I'm sharing her most recent. Read the following post she wrote, and tell me if you're not in love!

Here's my metamorphosis from last week:
I don't have a before picture, but I purchased terracotta posts from WalMart.

I used my favorite trigger spray paint, Universal Hammered Metal in Hammer Brown that I used on our herb garden urn.

I then ordered vinyl house numbers from etsy seller, VinylVineyard and applied 1 to each pot. After that I added a coat of satin finish lacquer.

And here is my completed project. Our house sits back from the road and is surrounded by bushes with the house numbers only displayed on the mailbox. So, this is our way of helping first time visitors find our home!

See? LOVE! Thanks for allowing me to share this with everyone, Roeshel! Check out her blog here.

Endnote: I've been staying up later than I should lately working on some really neat projects! Can't wait to show you guys! Look for them in the next couple days!
