Beautiful Flower and Plant Vases Made With Cement and a Towel

Beautiful vases made out of an old towel and some mixed cement.
I loved this idea. A friend of mine in one of our decorating closed circuit made a few of these for her balcony and yard decor....and 
aren't they gorgeous!!!!



This is all you need to do,

Phase 1 

Mix your cement as you would for the ground with water. Then dip the towels in the cement. Please make sure the towel is very soaked in the cement mix. Then just place it over and an empty large can of coffee or a tall vase, just make sure that the vase you use has a wide mouth so you can have a wide bottom to hold the cement base upward and straight.

Phase 2
after you place the towel properly over the can or vase...then let it dry well.


Phase 3

Once it dries it will end up like this.


Then paint it the color you wish to match your home.
She painted them a deep turquoise and a light gray since her house has these colors. They sure came out gorgeous and for sure that is a great frugalicious idea.





See you in a few days with another great frugal decorating idea.

Some Old Lamps Get a New Facelift

Hello everyone, thank you from visiting my decorating blog. 
I deeply appreciate your visit and comments.

Spring arrives every year bring with it much work for me to do at home. I have been very busy sprucing up so many items throughout the apartment that were looking old and a bit dated in time. We as homeowners often get so relaxed in our lovely homes that we forget or don't see some of the items that need to be updated throughout the house. So I made a huge list a month ago of these items in the apartment that needed some tender loving care and I got most of them completed.

1. My 2 over the rail flower boxes went from old black paint that were chipped and ugly looking to a nice gold finish. I want to deeply apologize for completely forgetting to take a before photo of these flower boxes.

AFTER



Here's is one of my tall living room lamps.  They both went from an ugly brown color to a beautiful rich black tone.

My office and makeup vanity lamps were sponged in silver and gold back in the 90's, but I took it from the 90's to our current time by painting them all muted gold.
