I decided it was time to fill the giant ugly windowsill in my bedroom. I want to keep things simple until I move into a more permanent home. I looked on Pinterest and Hometalk for some inspiration and this is what I came up with!
This is the space I was working with..giant and ugly, right? But I cannot deny, the view is absolutely beautiful! So now it was time to make the surroundings beautiful as well :)
Here are some of the items I picked up from Michael’s.
I started off by painting the ‘wooden box thing’ (idk do these things have a name???) a gorgeous light pink color. I thought this color would be perfect for spring and summer!
While waiting for the first coat of paint to dry on the ‘wooden box thing’ I painted the 3 mason jars white. I love the combination of white and light pink
I applied a second coat to both the ‘wooden box thing’ and the jars. While waiting for those to dry I cut a good portion of the stems off of the faux flowers. This ended up being WAY harder than I thought, 10 minutes to cut just ONE of them. By the time I got to the third flower I figured out I could just snap the stem off..oh well, you live and you learn!!
This is the finished result of my project! I am obsessed with how it came out Now onto the rest of how I decorated my windowsill…
Here it is!!! SO much better! On the left I put 2 basic black picture frames (yes, I know they need to be filled - I am the queen of never actually putting pictures in the frames). On the right I put a candle from Bath & Body Works, a jeweled picture frame, a wire N, and 2 decorated wine bottles.
