Easy Planter Hack: How to Convert Used Candle Containers to Cool Planters in Minutes. #diyplanter #diy #planterideas

The process for removing the wax / wicks and converting them to planters is really easy too, so I’m sharing the tutorial today.

Sage green walls are perfect for soothing neutral bedroom walls. See why sage green is the new neutral of 2018. #sage #green #neutral #paint #color #trends #bedroom

12 Rooms in 12 Months: Our Balcony Progress + How to Add Privacy Outdoors on a Budget

This post is sponsored by First Editions® Plants and SheKnows Media.
