Before & After: A Dresser-Turned-Succulent Garden!

created at: 03/19/2012

It's an old dumpy dresser, the kind we've seen a million times on Curbly.  But this time, this time it's getting a whole different kind of makeover!

SEE?  Now it's a succulent garden!  How cool is that?  Of course, I imagine Curt and Jessica of the blog Grizzly Bear Modern live in a pretty dry climate... what with the whole dresser being outside deal and, of course, the succulents.  But it's still a pretty cool idea that you could adapt with all kinds of furniture.  If you're curious how they did it, check out the full how-to (and more pics) over on Grizzly Bear Modern.

I love it! I think it can be used in a green room or a shaded porch as well!

I like the way you think, Jessica! ;)

Very cool!!!  This would even make a fantastic addition on a veranda or covered porch in a more wet climate.  Heck, if you wanted this could be in a living room.
