Planter out of a can, terrariums, a few vintage finds

I made a planter out of a large tomato sauce can


needed some greens in my living room

I love Terrariums, finally made one!
Use soil that will stay moistened
 add stones for drainage and a few for looks
plant your favorite indoor plants 





some of my vintage finds :)

a burlap covered jar

My latest project, I painted my kitchen table...

I discovered this paint awhile ago and finally went and got some to try


I decided to not do real white so I went with the  "old white"



you can see a before and after, but the after has only one coat in this picture

                         

the lighting isn't so good in this picture , but this is with the wax on it before I buffed it.


this is when its done, turned out pretty good now I just have to do my chairs but I think Im going to do them a different color :)
