Hi guys! Did you have a great holiday weekend? I sure hope so. I worked, but it was a nice weekend anyhow.
As I was strolling through Ikea the other day and came across the Asker kitchen wall storage system, which is on rails. While I have no interest in a rail storage system for my kitchen, I spotted the ceramic pot which they displayed holding a plant and some holding pens and utensils.
The ceramic pot immediately conjured up images of planters from Mud Puppy Ceramics and Pigeon Toe Ceramics, which are both handmade, beautiful, and cost considerably more than the $7.99 Ikea pot. The Ikea Asker pot was perfect for plants since it already had a drainage hole at the bottom. I also picked up three matching succulents there..I have had such good luck with most of their plants.
I planted the succulents in the same manner that I planted the ones in the dish, then hung them staggered on the wall. The wall is at the end of full-length windows, and I have never really been sure what to put there.
It's a fun little Ikea-hack. Now I just have to find something to put on the floor under them. I had a chair, but it didn't look quite right. Maybe a table like this one..which would match the side table I bought previously.
