Months ago I saw a succulent wall post by #ourfauxfarmhouse and I knew I wanted one.
Here is their version
I knew the exact place I would put it because I had miraculously been able to grow succulents on the front porch. There were zero casualties!!
I can’t say that for some of the other porch plants.
May they Rest In Peace.
I started looking for supplies. Just because you want a certain thing, doesn’t necessarily mean you will find it in your neck of the woods. It might be slightly different and costs 10 times more.
I found the metal holders and because I’m God’s favorite, there were on clearance for $2.48.
The wood was just plain ole wood from Lowe’s.
I figured out the size I wanted it to be.
Put some boards together and figured out to make them stay together.
I could have followed along with the blog post but that would have been the easy way.
The boardA were stained and I added the metal potholders.
I wanted white pots but do you know how much 8 pretty “already white” pots are?”
I bought 8 terra cotta pits for $1.18 each and spray painted them.
My handy dandy and very cute assistant (don’t tell him I called him that!) helped me hang it on the front porch. Right between two of the prettiest old windows I’ve ever seen.
Right next to the swing that will now be used since there is a ever so slight hint of fall in the air. Don’t get excited yet Floridians, it’s still blazing most of the time but it’s getting there.
I added plants. Some were previously loved on and some were new and loved on by Walmart before me.
You may call me farmer.
Have a fantastic weekend!
