Houseplant Decor


Not too far from my house off one of the main highways lies a little warehouse of semi damaged items ranging from furniture to toys. It’s appropriately named Pings and Dings because usually you will find something that couldn’t be sold in the regular store for some minor infraction.

Saturday I stumbled on this beauty, I turned the corner and there she was looking all gold, shiny and pretty. Although, I wasn’t completely sure where her new permanent residence would be in our home, I knew she was coming and I would throw something or the other to curb to make room for her shiny pretty $35 self.

After scanning the SKU I learned it was from the 2015  Target Threshold collection.

When my friend helped me pick it up to take it to the register, I discovered the bottom was hollow and I immediately thought it would make a great planter, and my intuition was right.

With it not being sealed on the inside I’ll have to take the plant out to water it, and let it drain before placing it back on the two boxes I placed inside to give the plant a little height.

I had a vision of a traditional green plant going in it, but when I came across this burgundy beauty for $10 at Walmart I thought a pop of color would be nice. I’m hoping the light shining through the door and side panels will be enough.

I scraped the popcorn from the ceiling and painted this area a little while after Christmas last year. I still have some paint touchups to do as well as change out the light fixture and add a rug for the entryway to be complete. I’m happy with how it’s coming along.

I’m in love with my new flower baby. Do you have houseplants?

    She’s definitely a beauty. The plant and the gold beauty that is. I have a ton of plant babies some of which still need a pretty pot to sit in. The light your new baby is getting is great. It’s actually more than medium light so rotate her every time you water her.

    I love it! I have a brown thumb, and all I have for houseplants right now is what’s left of a snake plant I divided up. I’m babying it as best I can!

    Your entry is gorgeous!

      The funny thing is I struggle with indoor plants but my garden is beautiful. Hoping to channel that gift into the house!

    Love how this came together! The burgundy plant complements the gold perfectly. I don’t have any houseplants but would love a couple faux floor plants now that my little one is 2 1/2 and less likely to eat it. LOL!
