Don't just pin create

Hi guys I am a little late to the party (what else is knew) but i hope you like some on my projects i plan on showing you over the next few days! I love the idea of just don't pin create my pinterest boards are so full but i rarely do the projects. For those of you who are new to my blog welcome, just a little about me i am a SAHM mom of 5 kids 2 girls 3 boys. I like to do all sorts of home projects from organizing and cleaning to decorating.
*I like home and decorating project to be:
*pretty (to me)
*inexpensive if not free -i love to use what i already have or buy very few things to make something i love
*and if it involves spray paint it is considered a bonus in my eyes ;)

Yesterday i was thinking that my $40 hutch  looked kind of blah so i gathered up all my clear vases and set to work.

I got my 13 year old Liz to help me and all she had to do was take those vases and wrap them with rubberbands

see super easy put as many or as few as you want

no rhyme or reason whatever strikes your fancy

take them outside and spray paint them white. I used valspar white in satin if you have read this blog for anytime I love spray paint, my favorite brand is valspar from lowes but i am not loving the new nozzle. Anyways spray them all down and let them dry for a few hours (or like1 if you are me and the paint smears just a little)

once dry removed the rubber bands and I set them back on the shelf with a tealight candle i love them! Just enough of the clear showing through to let the candles shine through.

This project was almost free i had to buy rubberbands (i have 3 boys they don't last in this house) and i used about half the bag so $0.50 total

hope you enjoyed this project tune in tomorrow for another

make sure to be working on your projects to link up on Friday!
