I picked up a couple of these 16″ loaf pans at a vintage market… I don’t think they are vintage, but I thought they were cool. I didn’t quite know what I was going to use them for, I just knew I liked them!
I have always wanted to do something simple in the windowsill over my kitchen sink, but nothing ever looked right to me. I was washing dishes and the idea came to me to plant succulents (the only plant I can keep alive) in the loaf pan.
I liked it but I didn’t LOVE it. I thought maybe a stencil might work so I pulled out my Martha Stewart Monogram Serif stencils and some black paint.
And now, I LOVE it! I stenciled rather quickly because I was anxious to get it done. Not perfect, but it has a little more character!
