Unconventional Plant Styling
The name says it all... Unconventional plant styling! I love plants and being surrounded by nature. I try to fill my home with indoor plants and have an abundance of flora surrounding our house.
recently I went on the hunt for a budget friendly plant stand to house some pot plants that have been rapidly multiplying around the dining room. I couldn’t find one that I loved! I found a few I liked, however they were a bit too pricey for my budget.
My husband had previously mentioned wanting a bar cart in the dining room but I brushed it off. I don’t drink much and we can’t leave alcohol and glassware out with the kids... unless! It struck me, if we made a compromise we’d have the best of both worlds... Bar Cart turned Plant Stand!
We decided the Kmart Bar Cart in black was the best choice and I happily set up my selection of pots and succulent cut offs into a little vignette of plant goodness. The best part is, I can move them around the house depending on how much sun they need and I can wheel them straight outdoors if need be. It’s a cute conversation or statement piece and a nice way to inject some greenery into the space. Plus, bar cart and dining room go hand in hand!
Why plants in the dining room?
They add greenery
It’s fresh and never dates… plants will ALWAYS be awesome
You can display kitchen herbs
It looks pretty... dah!
Here’s a few suggestions on how you can display plants in your home!
Buy a bar cart, treat your self!
Who says book shelves are for books only? Load them with plants for a display that WOW’s! TIP: A-Frame bookshelves are all the rage right now or soften some industrial bookshelves with layers of plants for an Urban vibe.
Cluster pot plants on shelves. Make an impact by lining rows of shelves with plants. This is also a great way to show off those gorgeous pots.
Hanging or wall mounted pots can make a dramatic impact without taking up floor space and makes a great alternative to art.
