I have a corner in the living room next to the television that is really hard to fill. I placed a recovered bench there but I knew it needed a little height to balance out the fireplace on the other side.
So when my sweet sister in law gave me this old pepsi crate for Christmas I knew it would be perfect on top of the bench in that corner. But what to put into it?
I knew the spot needed some color, so I gathered a few bright clay pots from outside, teal blue, bright yellow, cornflower blue and gave them a good scrubbing. Then I purchased some houseplants from my local garden center and potted them up.
I love the organic feel of it...
and I love that I had the pots outside so the only thing it cost me was for the new houseplants.
Almost all the pots, that is. This gorgeous piece of painted pottery jumped into my cart and I didn't have the heart to leave her behind.
Definitely worth the splurge.
I don't suppose you need me to tell me that you are worth it!
I'm joining Brenda over at Cozy Little House for Tweak it Tuesday...
