potted evergreen...inside!


This pretty room caught my eye while I was perusing Pinterest.
I loved...
the texture of that evergreen in the rustic, aged pot
the statement of an over-sized accessory
the unexpected idea of bringing it indoors
 I immediately thought of all the evergreens I've seen at Home Depot and Lowes 
garden centers lately for $5 - $10 depending on size...

Here are a couple of ideas if you don't have a rustic pot:

Hobby Lobby has them on sale this week 50% off

Terra Cotta Pots are inexpensive, this is my favorite diy to give one some patina:
No tutorial, but Karen from Redoux Interiors explains,
'Cover terra cotta pots in joint compound, let dry, paint and let nature take its course.'

I think it's one of those no fail projects - it looks great even messed up! 


I'm off to get my plant...stop by tomorrow to see what I did with it,
 or go get your own!

Hmmm. Love the look of it but not sure if it will survive inside... But for $10, give it a shot, right?
