Fiddle Leaf Fig Inspiration and 15 Pretty Planters

Fiddle Leaf Fig
I have a love/hate relationship with these green beauties. I love them and they hate me. ūüėČ No really. I’ve had three plants now and they keep dying, despite my tender loving care – scheduled waterings, a sunny spot next to the window and a gentle leaf polishing with coconut oil. I’ve tried everything. Maybe it’s my house…maybe it’s not enough sun. Who knows? Some day I’ll figure it out, until then these pictures will keep me dreaming.

And here are some fun potting ideas too! I stick mine inside a ceramic pot and¬†woven grass basket at home. These cute planters extend beyond the fiddle leaf fig…think snake plant,¬†cacti, rubber trees, palms etc. There are lots of indoor plant options that would look stunning in these pretty planters.

Diy Garden Pot

Easy. Easy. Easy.
DIY
{Step One}
Use masking tape to tape around your pot. Spray with spray paint. I used a glossy black. Use whatever color your heart desires. Place a piece of cardboard under your pot to keep things clean while spraying.
{Step 2}
One more coat of spray paint. Make sure you spray inside the rim up to soil level.
{Step 3}
Let it dry and then peel off that tape! Touch-up any uneven places with a paintbrush. You can spray your spray paint into a piece of crumpled newspaper — it will hold a nice little puddle that you can use a touch-up paint.

 


Garden Station DIY Wooden Pallets

I have the best Hubby ever. Dan made me a gardening station for my potted¬†plants and tools. I love that he¬†used recycled wooden pallets… so eco-friendly of you¬†Dan!¬†He even made a shelf for my planter boxes and storage for soil and pots underneath. He was the handyman and I was the painter. I also had some fun arranging a few of our star lamps to make the space extra special¬†{Dan wanted me to move them from our umbrella because someone kept hitting their head on them ha-ha}.¬†Yay for team effort. Another DIY successfully completed.¬†I just love him ūüôā What a thoughtful guy!

Mom gave me a bunch for a Spring treat.
I can’t wait to plant these babies and watch them grow!
I’m thinking of spray painting my planter with some chalkboard paint
(Similar to this clipping I cut from a magazine a few years back).
