A few months back we picked up this wooden wine rack from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
While we like wine, we don’t need to hold 100+ bottles. Instead we installed it in the empty front corner of our living room to hold plants.
It was the easiest install ever. We just leaned it against the wall and screwed it in.
John and I didn’t get much farther than getting it up and randomly placing some plants. It was there, but it wasn’t very attractive. That was in May. So there it sat. Pretty empty and definitely sad.
We are big fans of having plants in the house. They improve indoor air quality, which is great for us since we don’t have any kind of air filtration going on. They also add some life to the room and bring the outside in. What’s not to like about that?
Fast forward to last week, we inherited some plants from some friends that recently moved, and I finally found the motivation to finish this project. I headed over to my new favorite store, At Home (Seriously, I love this store a little too much). They had a great selection of small glazed pots for under $10 each.
A fews hours later I had potted and repotted many many plants, and made a big mess of our kitchen.
Then I placed all the plants in their new homes.
While it doesn’t look much now, the hope is that as the plants fill in it will become a lush wall garden in our living room.
Have you ever repurposed thrift store items? Do you know of any fast growing plants that we can add to our shelf? We would love to hear about it!
