Best of #PrettyWaterlogueApril Week 1

I am absolutely blown away by all the Waterlogue artists that are partipating in #PrettyWaterlogueApril on Instagram. There are so many beautiful images. Some would make beautiful greeting cards or garden flags. Others need to be framed and hung up to enjoy immediately! 

I’m still working on that amazing giveaway prize, but I can tell you so far I have some great sponsors! Check back soon to learn more.

Knock-Off Garden Table

Contributor Jacque: I often find myself searching online looking at furniture and decor on sites that I consider full of unique items.  I recently came across the Anthropologie Partridge Garden Table and fell in love.  The creative use of old mismatched legs was awesome.  Then I saw the price; a mere $ 148.00.  As cool as it is, spending that much for a plant stand is way more than I could ever justify.  I knew I could make it cheaper and am excited to show you how to make your own!

see how here:

You too can easily cut your own art mats like a pro. Save money and time by creating your own art and matting and framing it yourself.

How to Faux Finish Weathered Wood Grain

Do you love the Restoration Hardware tables that have that beautiful gray (driftwood-like) weathered wood? Me too. But, I can’t justify spending thousands of dollars on their furniture. Instead, I found a Craig’s List pedestal table that had the right shape and size for our kitchen. It was a cherry veneer finish, but after some paint you’d never know!

Upcycled Plant Cart Saved from "Above The Rim"

This past summer I spied a metal cart in a dumpster. To be frank, I have never truly actually participated in dumpster diving. The thought of actually climbing inside a dumpster has never been on my acceptable things to do list. But, this metal bar cart was floating on top of the trash pile. It was (to quote a Seinfeld episode) above the rim! And it was begging to be upcycled into a beautiful plant cart.

I can't say enough good things about SuzAnna's Antiques. Tucked away beside the railroad tracks on Durant Rd. This place is a true gem in the rough. Lots of vendors and things to choose from. And a wide range of finds in everyone's budget!

My boys (who whine and complain after the novelty of sports wears off) have been super excited to go to Karate several times a week at Peck's TKD. Ms. Peck and all the instructors are wonderful with the kids and really make the classes fun. Free WiFi for parents and a monitor to view the instructions at all times.

I've been taking Bikram yoga here on and off for over a year. When I first started I too was concerned about how it seemed much stricter than the usual yoga I was accustomed to. But, after a few more classes I began to understand the class style and how to tune in and push myself beyond the feelings of heat and sweat. When I'm active in going to class I can go 5 months or more without seeing the chiropractor. It truly is the best thing from my muscles and bone alignments. If you can go in with an open mind you won't be disappointed.
