We painted the patio furniture black!
I figured since I had a lot of black accessories outside already I might as well keep things consistent.
I also flipped the rug over to highlight the cream instead of the blue. It may be a bad choice due to dirt but I can easily hose it down with water or flip it again to blue.
My giant succulent bowl:
I didn’t blog about the process of making this, but basically I bought this plastic bowl planter from Target. I found a pretty arrangement of succulents in a standard bowl arrangement from Home Depot. I think the arrangement was between $20 and $30. The original bowl looked similar to this one. Yuck. Ugly.
What I did to transfer it over was this: I let the original arrangement sit for a while so the soil dried out. Then once dry, I flipped the bowl over, shook it a bit, and released the plants from the bowl. Thankfully most of the roots and soil stuck together so it didn’t fall apart! I then plopped the mass of plants into the new white planter and filled in the gaps with cactus potting soil. Yay! Much prettier.
The fern was less than $10 and I used this other planter from Target to complement it nicely. I originally bought succulents for their hardiness and as a result the chance of me killing them is greatly reduced. This is my first fern… I think this one is supposed to be hardy as well so here’s to hoping I don’t kill this one! Heh.
