And like any Mom on Mother's Day she's in LOVE with homemade gifts and goodies. So I did JUST that this year (with the help of one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE websites......Knock-Off-Wood).
I should preface this little DIY by saying I have NEVER built anything before (except for some awesome Target furniture that came with instructions). Ana's designs are not only awesome but they are SUPER easy and wonderfully explained. Love love LOVE her blog! Here is her Knock-Off-Wood's Spa Bench I made.
This bench only took me an afternoon to build and then another afternoon to stain and varnish.
Curious about her "Herb Pots"?? Here's the deets on that:
I found these cute little pots at Home Depot for $2.00ish a piece.
Next I painted Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint (LOVE this stuff) in the squares. It dries super fast on clay pots so I did two coats in no time.
And VIOLA! Add some ribbon and a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
I'm linking up to the CSI project for their paint challenge:
