"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

If you have a green thumb and a penchant for planting, you probably already know that terra cotta pots are the ideal way to plant single plants like bamboo, succulents, cacti, and more. These classic clay pots soak up water, weather just about any outdoor element, and drain excellently. The burnt orange planters, however, only add one color to your space. That is why painting terra cotta pots is a great way to work your crafting hands into your green thumb world. There are plenty of options out there for painted pots, but this one is especially trendy. The Striped Flower Pot Crafts display a minimalist design. Check out the picture for two striped designs for your pots.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The instructions and materials list is a little misleading, though. You must realize that you need to soak the pot, brush dirt off with brush, wipe, lay out in sun to dry, apply several coats of spray sealant on the inside and out, prime it with primer or opaque white paint, dry thoroughly, and THEN you are ready for the painting of the pot with the cool and modern stripes.
