DIY Rustic Fountain

Oh my it's been awhile since I have been here.  Life happens and I have been living it.  So nice to break out my inky things and this AMAZING DecoArt stencil.  I really love stencils and the bigger the better.  After years of wanting to update my deck for that "outdoor living" vibe this weekend we finally started to pull our vision together.
This is my easy DIY Rustic Fountain...


I gatheredDecoArt Paint, stencil and Dynasty Stencil brush.  Just tape and load ink!

I love this Americana Decor Stencil, Cafe ParisStencil... no like I really love it!  

I encourage you to peek...  this literally took 2 min.

I attached a small bucket to my old pump.

Adding the letters to this galvanized tub is quick and easy.  It completely changes the look.  This DIY Rustic Fountain cost me $70 with the pump and tubing consuming $50 of the cost.
BONUS...
Since that was so quick and easy I decided to add a little detail to my new lanterns.  These little lanterns I picked up on clearance for $7…

I am an Influencer

Can I just say how thrilled I am!  Yep, I am pinching myself.  A few months ago I was contacted to be an AMAZON INFLUENCER.  MEEEE.... did they get the right contact info!
I am an influencer for Amazon.ca... yep Canadian!  
I am super proud of this.  You can see the Amazon banner on my side bar to the right.  
What does this means...
When you click that you will go to my  STOREFRONT
Here, I have loaded in products I use, have used and continue to use.  I simply link to other stores that already exist on Amazon.ca.  Often these are Canadian small businesses.   You can even Follow my AMAZON Storefront and see when I add new product.
What does that mean for you?
When I use product and it is available in Amazon I will link it.  You can click and purchase.  It is that easy.  
Who else do I Influence for or receive product from.   These companies provide me with product to create with to inspire you.  
*These are companies I love to create with.  This is product I love to use.*

Treasure Box Curio

A new year and new dies released from Eileen Hull.  I love the new Treasure Box die and Stacking Box die.  I decided to create a Curio Cabinet.  The best part... you can fit 3 stacking drawers in the treasure box!  







New Boho Bits filled the glass jars.

Crackled drawer...

I popped in an old photo from 1946.


I created a vintage mirror effect at the back of the treasure box.

I hope you have been enjoying Eileen's new release.  The team has been sharing amazing projects.
