I hope I’m not over doing it with all this talk of being outside and planting flowers and working on porches. It’s just where I find myself spending my days lately, and I love it.
I was actually at a greenhouse/landscaping place last week and was so disappointed I couldn’t buy more shrubs and trees. This year I officially don’t need anymore. Hard to believe.
So I’ll just have to stick with buying flowers and objects to put them in. Speaking of, remember that bowl rack/shelf I bought a while back? This one…
Well, I finally got it hung and decorated! Check it out.
I began by loading the top two shelves up with some funnels I’d been collecting for a christmas project that I never got to last year.
I honestly didn’t realize how many I had until I set them all up. Quite the collection.
I then filled in the bottom of the shelf with flowers.
This area doesn’t get a lot of sunlight so I planted each individual flower in a clay pot.
The begonias should be okay with not so much sunlight, but the geraniums may need a bit more direct light. Since they are in pots I can switch them out with some other geraniums that I have in the same size pots in a more sunny location. Smart!
This new shelf is on my side porch where, if you remember, I hung my giant scale turned planter….
… and where I have one of my food mill planters.
So, the shelf isn’t the perfect color and it’s a bit too rustic for me, so I’m pondering ways to make it a little more contemporary but I haven’t quite figure it out yet.
But, for now, Im really pleased with it and the overall look is just fab! Another project to cross off my list.
What do you think of my shelf? And ideas to make it more contemporary? Or do you like it just they way it is?
