When my hubby and I moved from our tiny one-bedroom apartment into our house, it was looking oh-so-sparse for quite some time (eh, who am I kidding… furniture curating will be part of my life for the foreseeable future).
After moving, with most of our finances needed for the important stuff (oh heey lawnmower), I needed some simple, cheap, and effective projects to spruce things up a little.
After finding these little succulents at Home Depot, I knew they would be great to add a little color to our home.
You don’t need much for this project. A little soil, some tiny succulents, and an assortment of your favorite vintage/thrifted vessels.
This post has some great info on planting succulents if you’re just getting started.
I love collecting vintage items, and china is no exception. I found this to be a great project for utilizing some of my recent finds.
A word on the containers, you definitely want to go with something deep. The little blue teacup is on the verge of not working, but I used it anyway and the plant is doing fine. All this to say, if it looks too small, it probably is. You could also use mugs (because who doesn’t have about 50 of those hanging around just waiting for a purpose?).
So there it is! A fun way to revitalize vintage pieces!
