Refurbished Plant Stand
I have recently become more interested in having plant life in my home, in the past this has been rather unsuccessful even with plants that are “impossible to kill”. Thankfully I have a mother with a green thumb that has been able to save all of my unhappy plants. It may not always be me, my previous homes have been rather dark with only a small amount of afternoon sunlight if any at all.
My new residence has plenty of windows including a large one in the front receiving a whole day of sunshine. For some time I simply had a displaced stood standing at my front window to hold my peace lily up to the light. Not the most attractive setup but I wanted to be sure she got plenty of sun. My parents were at a community yard sale and happened to see this small bookcase unit.
My mother recalled my comment about looking for a plant stand that was tall enough to reach the window without being too intrusive. What a good eye she had! It was perfect and cost her only a whopping $2! I slapped on a few coats of paint to blend into my living room wall colour and voila! It is now a perfect home for my plants!
