Bar carts aren't just for beverages anymore. Pick up an inexpensive cart and bring the garden inside!
I'm just obsessed with wreaths this year. It's really an obsession every year, but I've come across this succulent wreath and I stopped dead in my tracks. The beautiful thing about this wreath? It'll last a long time because it's made from a very durable type of plant!
Old wire-cage fans seem to lurk in every corner of every consignment shop/thrift store/estate sale on the planet. If you've wondered what to do with them, here's a clever DIY project to consider!
I've been obsessed with the idea of making a succulent wreath for years now and you know what? I say 2012 is the year I finally make it happen! Who's with me? The weather is turning nice, after all... the timing couldn't be better!
I just finished drying a load of dishes, and looked down upon my Skinny LaMinx tea towel and noted I hadn't gotten an update from Heather's blog in ages, and wondered what happened to all her juicy content.
Turns out, something went awry with my feed reader, and I've been missing all kinds of cool stuff: new prints, patterns, and how-to projects like these awesome handcut cork magnets and my favorite: this DIY hanging garden project. I love the idea of hanging planters, but the macrame work on secondhand pieces I could fine was always a bit stale and 70s-ish, and the new ones way too Tuscan and overwrought with wrought iron.
But, with a bit of time, you can create your own hanging garden that's vintage-inspired, but still contemporary.
It's pretty incredible, really: plants that have developed in low-light conditions in the jungles of South American and Asia, with remarkably clean lines and tight textures that work amazingly in inside conditions in homes around the globe.
Low amounts of work, and quite the domestic payoff. Apartment Therapy has assembled fifteen of their favorite easy houseplant projects from 2009, which add a fun, intentional element with no fears of black thumbin' it.
A succulent is a beautiful thing. "Many of the following projects involve these easy-care beauties, while others are just simple but inspiring gardens and planters, some of them for small spaces, some for low-water situations, and so on. Enjoy!"
