Living on a fixed income, I had to get really creative. So, the first thing I did was "furnish" it. We have a room in our senior clubhouse where people leave things they don't need and pick up things they do. It's anonymous and discreet and very cool.
Now, I have yellow paint ($1.99) to make them really nice, but I have not had the time to paint them so you will just have to imagine them the same yellow as the plastic planters.
Next came the planters (24 for $15). I am an avid thrift store shopper, and find things at the local "stop and drop and shop" which is inside the gates of our recycling center. No one wants more land fill junk so the nicer things get left out and taken away.
So, using all thrift store plants and flowers (24 for $25), I filled every container I had. Some lay empty as I am going to embellish them with glass nuggets soon, but not many are "in transition".
I am including some of the reasons I spend as much time out there as I can. I just a need to sit in the outdoors and let these gorgeous sunsets take me away.
I hope you are inspired to do something "fun" without many "funds".
Total Time: 8-12 hours
