I found this wrought iron shelf/cd rack about 4 years ago, at the thrift shop. I think it is/was a cd rack anyhow. I really love the curvy shape of it. My plan was to eventually fill it with small succulents, using a collection of bowls and pots that I already had. It sat in a corner of the garage just waiting until I would finally move to my house in Boise. Well this last trip, I was in Michael's one day and saw that they had their faux succulents on clearance. A light went off in my brain, and I thought, wow, I don't have to wait for real ones, I'll just use these in the meantime.
I'm pretty pleased with how this project turned out. I've mixed in a few rocks that we've picked up here and there along the way.
Hubby used to roll his eyes at some of the ideas I would get. But he admits they usually turn out well, so he doesn't discourage me from buying or saving some mundane item that I will turn into something else. He's pretty impressed with the succulents. He also really likes the metal colander I turned into a light fixture over the kitchen sink.
