We refinished our living room floors and it got me changing up stuff in the living room/kitchen again. I do like change, but I also have a bunch of kids that are hard of things so change is inevitable anyway. I am terrible at gardening, but I do okay with indoor plants. It is probably related to the fact that I see them more. The garden is not ever in my mind. I have been slowly adding more indoor plants by keeping an eye out when I see them on sale. I don’t need to spend a bunch of money on a plant that quite possibly won’t survive my house long.
A few weeks ago Aldi had tropical plants on sale and I picked up a couple. Sidenote: Raise your hand if you love Aldi. I do almost all my grocery shopping there. Now my plant shopping too. Aldi for the win.
Anyway, I snagged two plants and then picked up a couple of pots for 50% off from Hobby Lobby. I used glossy white spray paint and then black Chalky Finish paint on top.
The textile hanging on the chalkboard is from Kazakhstan. Chris and I spent a summer there back in college. I picked it up at the local market. It once hung in a yurt. I’ve had it for over 15 years and could never figure out where to hang it. It only a half piece. The side you don’t see is a rough edge where it was cut from the wall of the yurt. I hung it over the chalkboard to see if I wanted to take down the chalkboard and hang the textile there. I kind of like it over the chalkboard now. It is all hand stitched – I need to post a close up later!
I’ve been pinning different planter ideas and plants that do well indoors. You can see more of those on my Indoor Plants pinterest board. So far everything is staying alive – dusty, but alive! Any tips on the best way to dust the leaves of plants?!
