Dollar Store Pots ~

 
I recently picked these up at the Dollar Store for...yes, you guessed it, a dollar each!

I grabbed some vinyl numbers I picked up at the office supply store for-eva ago. 

Stuck them to the front of each pot -

Added some greens I had around the house -

And for a few bucks and a few minutes of time...




I was also thinking I might paint them and age them up a little bit...what do you think?

Those are really cute pots. Love the picket fence look. Did you get them at Dollar Tree?

I like them white, but if you want color, what about red? It would pull the red from the spine of the books and pop against your wall too.

I think they look great! I surely don't see things like that at our dollar store!!! I will keep looking!

Very cute! Distressing them will probably make them look great too, but they are also nice as is. If you distress we have to see them again ;-)

You are so creative that whatever you do will be fabulous:)Aren't the dollar stores great? With a bit of imagination you can create a little piece of art for $1.00!

I think I'm about to head to dollar store and get me some of these! They are too cute!

Love the numbers!

I am loving these! I got the exact same ones about a month ago because I found a cute idea to do with them. Alas, mine are still white and haven't been touched, but I do plan on making the project soon! I love your take on them...and I'm voting for a little aged effect. They're terrific as always, Chelsea! Great job!!

you are always coming up with great ideas!

I kind of like them as is, Chelsea. BUT, if you did add to them, maybe a glaze over the white? Seeing them on your shelf, they look bigger than I originally thought. They are pretty cute, too, for the dollar store.

I love these and (for once) I wouldn't do a think with them. I like the crisp white color of them -- especially in the grouping on the ladder as shown. They are wonderful with that touch of green!

It's funny because "we" are so used to improving everything we find, I feel weird when I don't alter something. These are perfect with just the numbers added.

I like them exactly as they are, and good eye.

Great dollar project...they are adorable little pots and they are so cute numbered!

Ruthie said...

These are fabulous! I need to snag me up some of these pots! I love what you did with them! Thanks for sharing!

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

They are adorable! What a great find!

Lori said...

I love the look just like this. Of course a glaze or wash technique to age them up would be great, too! Nice job!

Petie said...

Very cool...I've got to get some of those vinyl numbers!!! Thanks for sharing.

So hard to believe that this is from the dollar store. I would love for you to link this to my party today -- Boardwalk Bragfest! Lots of inspiration in this post!

Love, love, love! They look so good on the those shelves. :)

michelle@somedaycrafts said...

I love everything about those shelves. Wish I could find one of them! I am featuring this post at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com

Stevie said...

Darling! Definitely makes me want to head on over to the dollar store! :) Great job.

I love this idea! I have one (only one, dang) of these pots sitting in my craft closet now! I think the idea of putting a number sticker on them, rather than painting, is genius! I love quick, easy, affordable, adorable projects like these! Thanks for the inspiration!
