Well, my new creations are ready for their big debut!....first here is the inspiration photo from Pottery Barn. The first thing I thought when I saw this room was 'I need more plants in my house!'...then ...when I looked closer....
that was it... I was off to the workshop! Some things just happen that way don't they?...you see something and your whole day is completely changed!
I made two....one large size for a 6.5 inch flower pot, one smaller for a 4.5 inch flower pot...
(the large one measures 24"x16" and extends out 9"~ smaller one measures 19"x11" and extends out 6"....they are made nice and sturdy to hold a flower pot filled with dirt & flowers and I'll be shipping them with the shelf unattached, you'll just need to screw in the included screws in the predrilled holes to attach the shelf)
I'm so pleased with how they came out... I think they are perfect for the front porch...on the deck...in the kitchen with herbs... in the bathroom with lavender....just about anywhere!
They are pretty just plain old chippy white but of course I don't plan on leaving them like that...you know me better than that!
But what to put on them???? I began to realize the possibilities were endless...
gorgeous french text?
awesome Italian text??
there was no way I could choose one....so the only solution is to let the customer choose...
(click on this to enlarge the photo and see them close up)
oh what fun I had playing with all the different possibilities!
So that's how I'll be listing it...as a 'custom ~ choose your own text' item. You'll also get to decide if you'd like more chipping/distressing on it...right now they have 'medium' distressing.
Okay...let's get to the giveaway part!
I'm giving away the smaller one of these to one lucky winner, and you'll get to choose what you'd like on it for text/image. To be entered, simply leave a comment on this post, that will give you one chance....blog about this giveaway or add a sidebar button on your blog, that will give you two chances to win (be sure to come back and comment that you did that so your name is in the hat again). It's open to the US & Canada and will end on Wednesday, Feburary 23rd...sometime in the evening I'll get a winner via random.org.
