Did you see me on Studio 5???
Didn’t I do awesome!?!
Well, since I actually pre-scheduled this post to go live as soon as the episode finished airing, truthfully I have no idea how I did. I am probably driving home right now.
Let’s just set this up for different scenarios, just in case.
Hey! Did you see me totally biff it? Wasn’t I totally graceful? Even with the blood gushing out of my head, I totally pulled through!
Dude! Can you believe I totally sneezed all over Darin? Good thing he was wearing a light suit today. Geesh, he sure wasn’t happy with me! Brooke sure thought it was funny though.
Oh. My. Gosh. Can you believe I totally forgot to wear lipstick? And makeup, and shoes, and all of my clothes? I can’t believe I totally went on air butt naked. (No pun intended.)
That about clears up all of my pre-show fears and possible worst nightmare scenarios.
That, and crashing my car and not showing up.
Oh no. maybe I didn’t even make it on the show! In that case, please disregard scenario #2 and #3. Let’s keep #1 as it happens on a regular basis.
Anywho… I know ya’ll are eager to see the garden slash patio projects from the show. Here’s a peek at one, and I will try and get the rest of them posted throughout the week.
One of my favorite projects from the segment are these glass bottles. Super simple, super cute.
Here’s what you need:
-5 Minute Epoxy
-Rebar or wood dowel
Sometimes I call rebar rebarb purely because I want to. And I think it sounds better. And I used to think that was really was it was called.
You can leave the rebar as is, or kick up the color with spray paint. Use spray paint, not brush on paint. Spray paint is way more outdoorsy.
As for the glass bottles use what you have on hand. New glass Coke bottles work great if you just remove the label. Wine or sparkling cider bottles work wonderfully too. Look for a fun color since they really light up when the sun hits them in the morning and evening hours.
To attach the rebar I mixed a little bit of 5 minute epoxy and just added it to the end of the metal bar. Carefully slide your glass on top and center it on the bottle. You will want to stick it in the ground, or a bucket of sand so it can dry while it is level.
Wait a day for it to dry completely, and then it’s ready to stick in the ground!
Rebar comes in all different lengths. I bought three and four feet pieces for these bottles. Home Depot sells them for between $1.80-$2.50, depending on your store.
You can embellish your bottles too if you want to.
Of you can embellish the story about going on live television and post about it on your blog before you even get home.
Isn’t technology amazing!
Now who’s taking me out for a Diet Coke? I need to mentally check out for a few hours.
Okay, I admittedly want to make more of these for my yard too.Pin It
