DIY Lemonade Stand by Hello Charlie

We got a ton of awesome response from our lemonade stand we made for Flora and Peg's summer shoot so we decided you guys need to know how EASY it is to make your own!

Here is what I used but feel free to substitute your own colors and props and tag us in the results! Pin this to Pinterest and be the mom hero who made this bad boy for their kids. You're welcome.

STEP ONE: Buy four wooden crates that you can paint easily. What is genius is after the lemonade stand is old news you can use these for toy storage, shoe storage ... see your husband can't get mad ... you are just being SMART.

STEP TWO: I spray paint EVERYTHING. Mainly cuz I'm lazy and also because I love the color palette that Devine Color at Target provides. I used the shade "ICE" for my four crates.

STEP THREE: Hand paint props ... don't be silly ... SPRAY PAINT PROPS. Lazy and easy and done in two minutes. I got my paper mache pineapples at Hobby Lobby and the spray paint is again Devine Color by Valspar at Target. Metallic Gold, Cove, and Raspberry were my colors of choice.

STEP FOUR: Add in cool props. I got my dowels from Hobby and spray painted them the same color as the crates, my banner is from the party section at Target, the "fresh lemonade" sign is from the dollar spot at Target, lemons are from Hobby Lobby and strawberries were too but you guessed it... I spray painted them pink or "raspberry" with my Devine Color. 

That's it! Set up the crates in a group of four, I simply taped the dowels to the back and set the props in. Of course you you have to add in some lemonade and adorable toddlers but I think you can handle that part :)
