We made it through the last week of school! It’s been a little quiet around here the last few weeks, but not because I’m being lazy, I promise ; ). In addition to school ending I have been working tirelessly on some kitchen renovations, despite the fact I did that last year too (crazy blogger lady). But I’ve officially wrapped some of these bigger projects up and I’ve got so much to share with you! Today I’m here to share a little Driftwood Succulent Planter with you. Stacy from Not Just a Housewife has this really fun series called Styled x 3 where she sends two other bloggers the same item and we all three see what we can come up with using the same item.
She sent both myself and Shayna from The Woodgrain Cottage this piece of wood that is technically meant for aquariums. One of the many reason’s I love Stacy’s blog, she’s so creative and always finds the most awesome things! (Affiliate link below)
Part of me wanted to paint it white, because let’s face it – I have a problem, but I also love wood tones, so I didn’t dwell on the white paint for too long. I knew I wanted to incorporate something “natural” to transform this piece. I didn’t do anything to my new piece of wood, I just added a succulent. It’s not a real succulent, but those fake ones from Hobby Lobby are quite gorgeous aren’t they?
I did put a little bit of spanish moss in with the stem so it wasn’t visible, but other than that, I just let this piece display in it’s natural beauty!
Sometimes it’s just the simple things that bring in something special to a space and give us a little piece of something new!
