DIY cachepots to match your style, using adhesive shelf liners! A quick, frugal and easy solution for newly bought indoor plants with ugly pots. All you need is leftover scraps from shelf liners and scissors. Upcycling and decorating in one DIY go.
A lot of friends liked the – extreme – makeover of the kitchen cart that I used as incentive so my mom lets me turn her kitchen from green to a super happy yellow so, here’s the scoop on a super frugal and pretty easy diy that gave new life to a very neglected kitchen cart.
First of all, you (really!) have to see the extremely rundown, bad, broken, awful, before:
When we flew back from Greece, (just in time for Thanksgiving’s dinners – perfect timing!), the first view of our home was pretty…sad.

Every family shops there (unless they can’t find the time) as the produce comes straight from the producers and the prices are seriously competitive and often much cheaper than in big stores.
Does it get busy? Think “black Friday” busy, every day.
