Before the Sailor left, I had been eyeing a grey wooden terrarium at Marshall's. It was $30, and I just couldn't bring myself to spend the extra money while we were spending our last few days and last few dollars with our Sailor.
I couldn't stop thinking about it tho and I was pretty much stopping in daily to make sure that it was still there. It reminded me almost exactly of the one from Pottery Barn and I knew that with a coat (or five) of white spray paint and a little sand paper it would be identical!!
Well, the Sailor, being the good husband he is (and one that never experiences buyers remorse), went into the store and bought it for me! He helped me to rationalize the purchase by saying that pottery barning it up would be the perfect project to keep my mind busy after he left.
He was right and I am soooo proud of the way it turned out!!
(please don't let the half painted wall distract you)
I'm still playing around with the arrangement and need to find something to put inside, but I just had to show her off!!
Thanks for reading!
