We did it again. Couple of my blogger friends and I got together and decided to make a challenge to each other with target’s dollar bin. On this challenge we decided to use $1 plastic bin makeover. At first I did not have any clue what I was planning to do with this bin. I did not have anything that I need to organize or needed to use for so what to do? Then when I was outside watering my succulent it came to me! Why not use it as a planter for my many succulents. However, just having a white bin was not going to do it. I always need to do something extra.
I had two vision for the bins and I did not know which one I was going to like most so I decide to to both and see which one looks best at the end. The good thing is that I got two white bin for $1!
The first bin I used black chalkboard paint and I sprayed it. I also did a couple of hole on the bottom to make sure the water will drain if I over water it.
I then spray painted the other white bin with silver metallic paint.
Once it was ll dried I added the soil and my succulents.
Now tell me which plastic bin makeover looks best to you? I am thinking of keeping one on my porch and one in my home. I do love having greenery in the home. Come and take a look at what my other fellow bloggers did with their dollar bins.

Collage clay mod podge was not something I thought at first I would be interested in but it definably grew on me. I just saw how your can do so much with it and I just happen to have some in my craft closet. I had initially use it to decorate my ice cream sundae glasses but now I though it would be fun to decorate my phone case. I like to show my personality as much as I can especially since I can be a shy person when I meet people at first. It always fun to have something that can initiate conversation.
The good thing about mod podge collage clay a phone case is that you can add anything you wish to your phone case. I decided to maybe try to do some theme phone cases. Maybe do a Halloween theme since its right around the corner.
The first thing I did was add the collage clay on top of the phone.
I added Halloween buttons that I found at Joann’s jewelry section. I just enjoy Halloween and I wanted a case that would show that off! The collage clay take 24 hours to dry so you can change it around as much as you want.
Give collage clay a try and tell me what you think!! I did one case all grave yard themed and the other spider filled. I had purchased a couple of resin flower from an etsy buyer. I do think it helps add a little something special to it.
I am excited about finding this world globe at Costco! I found it right before school started and its was defiantly a deal. I got it for $27 which is cheap due to world globe being so popular and it super hard to find one for a good deal. I just had to grab it and run. My hubby was not happy that I got it and but it looks so cute on my home now my chalkboard world globe.
Chalkboard painting is super easy to do and it does not take a lot of work. Just good weather and some time out of your day.
I used black chalkboard paint and sprayed the entire globe about 3 coats of chalkboard.
Once it what dried I took chalk and went over the indentation of the map with the chalk. The globe that I purchased had the land masses raised up which made it easy to go over it with chalk.
Now i can write Boo or Happy Holidays! You can’t go wrong with a globe. I was so happy I did get it because I did try to purchase a globe that was smaller and broken at a retailer and they only discounted it for 4 dollars! So the total came to $20 and it was so not worth it! Retailers are really not the best place to get them all the time. Here it is your chalkboard world globe.
