I just love these bamboo placemats!  I found mine at the Dollar Tree. They just are so handy!!

I made a picture frame mat from them, you can see how that came out, Bamboo Photo Mat. But I want to show you how I fixed an old mini planter and made it new and modern!! I’m so in love with this little guy! So this is what I’m working with….

This little planter was actually part of a wooden box that had 4 faux succulents in it.  I tore it apart awhile ago, thinking I could do something with it.  Today is the day! I took apart the bamboo place mat and separated the larger flat sticks.  Then I cut them to length and glued them to the sides.  I started with my glue gun, but that didn’t work too well. I switched to Tacky Glue. I think any sort of glue would work.

Of course, I “thought” I took more pictures, but that must have been “some other post”, because I couldn’t find any of the “in process stage”… Ugh!

I think you get the idea…

It looks cute just like that!! But, Oh!, do I have some plans for this guy!! 

This little sweet thing needs some paint! I use some white acrylic paint I had on hand. Ahhhh!!! Isn’t this adorable??? I’m still not done…

I added some awesome Liquid gold! Plaid Liquid Leaf Paint 

This stuff is AMAZING!!! It does not disappoint! So, all I did was brush on the magic.  It dries so fast and looks fantastic!
