  1. Im so sorry for your loss, thats so sad! 😪I’m from Boston too! We don’t have an accent, everyone else does. 🤣 Your stuff is wicked cool! I figured I’d throw in a Boston twist! 🤭

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      You made me giggle, no accent at all! Yes, they were great gals, and both were so talented. Paula was so kind and encouraging to me when I first got started blogging.

    These are super cute and they look si great on the mirror!

  3. Jennifer, you knocked this project out of the park! Your version looks just as beautiful as your inspiration piece. What a deal for two of these planters. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks, Michelle!! Thank goodness for good NH thrift stores!!

  4. Ok my friend you truly have a gift! Love this dupe and how you styled it. We need to go thrifting together!!! Beautiful and pinned!

  5. I can’t get over how much they look like the expensive one! I once did this but I didn’t do your final step which really makes it more authentic looking! You nailed it!!! Or I guess I can say your hammered it 😂

  6. Love how you’ve made these planters way better! I’ve never thought to add a dark wax to a paint finish, it really does add that perfect touch.

  7. You are a money saver so I think hit purchase for the shoes. You can tell your hubby how much you saved. d Just love everything. you do.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thank you, Diana!! It’s funny I just ran out to get the mail and there is a postcard from the shoe company…and then I read your comment…it’s like the stars are lining up to tell me to go for it!!

  8. What an amazing project, Jennifer! You are so creative! I love the antique brass look created. I say go for those shoes…spring is almost here! Wishing you a great start to the week!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks, Lynne! So glad you joined the team!

  9. Jennifer, my friend, you are the queen of these kind of transformations and finding dupes! What a wonderful job you did on this! It looks EXACTLY like the Magnolia knock-off…only BETTER! Great job!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      I’m the queen of something alright!!

  10. Eek…Jennifer, you have done it again! I LOVE the finished product! Now I’m so tempted to stop by the thrift store…but I can’t ’cause I’m supposed to be packing up the house and selling stuff! Great job with the layers, I think the antiquing wax really adds that dimension! And I completely understand the thumbprint…that is totally something that I do on a regular basis, lol!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Yes, don’t go to the thrift store then!! Oh, I forgot you were moving soon…there is something cathartic about throwing stuff out when you are packing up a house!!

  11. What a beautiful makeover, Jennifer! I love the finish you chose.
