Been loving the new chalk board wall in the family area of our home. On Mother’s day I came down and was surprised to see my husband has also found his inner artist.
Notice the newest residents of the chalk board in the upper right corner…. AIR PLANTS!
I have been scouring the house looking for the perfect place to put some. There are some beautiful air plant terrariums out there but I was hoping to keep this idea low-budget. I found a great Etsy shop also located in California called CTS Airplants which had exactly the plants I was looking for at very reasonable prices. They had a great little pack of Mini Tillandsia and it arrived in just a couple of days. During a spur of the moment trip to Restore and Rework earlier in the month I was on a hunt for any type of old hardware that would serve as a good home for tiny air plants. Of course I found some! I introduced the two to one another and here’s the result:
A perfect marriage between vintage copper handles and tiny 2 inch air plants. I screwed the drawer pulls directly onto the chalk board and slid the plants right in to their cozy new homes. Every few days I spray the plants with some water and they are happy! Another project added to my own list of vintage revivals.
