{Post 1,719} My Plant is Happy

One of the joys of my life is house plants. I have had this plant longer than I have had my husband! For a long time I have moved it around our house. I wanted a nice, good-looking plant stand for it that was fairly high and extremely stable. Enter thrift store. I bought a barstool that had a rotating armed chair on it. Wes removed the seat and screwed on a round piece of wood I had gotten (at a different thrift store to make a wall sign. I took it from there cleaning, sanding, painting (twice), waiting (for the paint to cure)....but it was worth it! Look—my plant is smiling!!!!!!

I love making things for my home—it gives me such satisfaction. Much more than just buying something.
