Living in Central PA, I find this time of year most uninspiring when it comes to decorating my house. While I’m glad the clutter of the holidays is gone, I still like to have color and interesting details fill my home.

Of course, it’s too early for spring. I also don’t really do Valentine’s Day and if I see another pinecone, I might scream. Thankfully, the other day inspiration struck when I was doing a little shopping at Walmart. Yes, I was somehow inspired by Walmart. Alert the design gods. Anywho, the store had just received a huge shipment of “exotic angel plants,” and I knew they’d add the perfect amount of freshness, life, and inspiration to my space. So, I loaded up my cart and off I went.

With my plants on hand, I was ready to break out another new treasure! This past November I was extremely fortunate to find this old chicken feeder on eBay. Normally, these suckers come with a hefty price tag. Luck was on my side, and I was able to pick up this guy for under $40 (with shipping). Talk about a steal. I actually never even opened the box until yesterday. It sat in my basement untouched for three months. Get it together, Michael!

So, I simply put in my plants, added a few candlesticks, tucked in a little moss – and a centerpiece was born! I love how the plants are peeking out of the rusty galvanized screen. The candlesticks add a little sparkle and glam. It’s all the things I love.

I have a terrible track record with these plants. (Though, I blame myself because I probably should not be buying something with “exotic” in its name.) But that doesn’t stop me from trying. Hopefully, I can keep them alive for at least a few months. At $2.50 each, it seemed worth the risk.

While it’s not much, this little centerpiece definitely got my creative brain working. I’m excited to tackle a few other areas in my house in hopes of no longer being uninspired by this season. How do you decorate this time of year?

    That looks fantastic! I just love your design style. I am slowing decorating our new home and stop by your blog daily for inspiration. Word of caution on the Walmart plants…..treat for bugs even if you don’t see any right away. I am speaking from a rather embarrassing experience. They can make indoor dining seem very outdoorsy without much notice. On my way to check out the Threshold line at Target!

    Love the chicken feeder — fabulous, but can I bother you for the paint color? Our dining room is orange creamsicle, and I want more of what color you have. I hope you can help! thank you!!!

    Michael, love the chicken feeder but I can’t keep my eyes off the baubbles on your chandelier! Round crystals? Glass ornaments? I searched and found where you bought it but it looks like it had normal not so stunning crystals to start with, I’m sure you’ve talked about it, did I miss it? Those glass balls are to die for!!!

    I never thought of an old chicken feeder as decorative….but now I will be looking. That is the most inspiring use for one ever! I love the plants and then the added candlesticks. Genius!
    Thanks!
