I envy anyone who lives in the same city as Ikea. Heck, I’d settle for having one in my own state. Our trip to Ikea last week was driven by the desperate need for an office redo, which is in progress now. (Lots of pictures coming soon!)
While I was there I found some very inexpensive ceramic pots and remembered this post that I had seen a few weeks earlier. Knowing that I had a graveyard of paint samples in my basement, the pots were just asking to become a project. They cost a mere $2 and $3. (Ikea, will you marry me??)
This project could also be done with clear glass votive candle holders. That would be a different effect but the same style.
I just love how these little pots turned out… I pray that the plants inhabiting them stick around longer that the last ones did. Seriously, I can kill anything with leaves. I am not even attempting actual gardening this year without a plant mentor. House plants are the only kind that even have a chance of survival under my not-so watchful eye.
It’s been a rainy, gloomy Spring Break week here in the Midwest. I was hoping for a bit of sun, but the rain has made for several epic naps. What are some of your favorites for a rainy day?
