Plants make any area a more peaceful one. I love gardening, but don't exactly have a gigantic backyard with a garden plot. Solution: a tin can garden!
I'm a sucker for succulents and air plants. They are largely inexpensive, come in all shapes, sizes, colors and easy to grow, always a winning combination!
Last month we told you all about our raised bed garden plans, and today we're back with all the juicy details. In a nutshell, this was a huge project in terms of the research and planning, and the easiest when it came time to actually do it. It was a great lesson in "preparation is everything". We're so grateful to Duluth Trading Co. for giving us a motivational kick in the pants to get this project done.
What do you do with an old room divider that's been sitting around, unused, for the last 5 years? Cut it in half and turn it into a modern wall-mounted herb garden, that's what!
We've spent the last two years working on the inside of the Curbly House, and it's high time we started focusing some of our energy on the outside. Specifically, the yard - a space that's in shabby shape after months of construction and damage from heavy machinery. We needed a kick in the pants to get going on the landscaping, and are starting small with a vegetable garden project with the help of Duluth Trading Co.
Copper is a huge trend in DIY decor right now, as are those hardy little air plants you see everywhere. But what happens when you combine the two?! These awesomely minimal DIY copper air plant vases, that's what!
This weekend I took a tour of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum fairy garden exhibit. With camera in hand, I gleefully entered a wee, magical land. Although there were no Leprechauns to be seen, sharing my photos seemed like the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
As it turns out, not all fairies like the same kind of architecture
I've seen a lot of planter DIYs over the last few months, but never one that I felt like I needed to drop everything for and make right away. That is, until I found this modular planter project.
If you're short on space, but dying to bring in live plants as part of your home decor, this DIY is perfect for you. These staghorn ferns will hang on the wall, taking up virtually no space at all. You'll just need a few supplies, and the best part is that there are no power tools required. So anyone can make their own.
