Hey, there, it’s Sarah of Sadie Seasongoods and today, we’re talking about houseplants and incorporating them into your home. With a little help from the Charlotte Region ReStores, of course!
Houseplants and botanically inspired décor have been all the rage for a few years now- and it shows no signs of slowing down! Thankfully, there are all sorts of ways to get this look for less thanks to Habitat ReStore. Some ideas are traditional ways of displaying your indoor plants, but others are more unique and abstract. But ALL of these are upcycled using items you can find at any of the Charlotte Region ReStores!
Felt Succulent Desktop Garden
If you don’t exactly have a green thumb and prefer houseplants that will never die on you, try out these felt succulents! Plus, there are endless items to use as “planters” in all our ReStores!
DIY Ladder Plant Shelf
Old ladders are something our ReStores often have available, and they are PERFECT for upcycling into a houseplant display for your home!
Botanical Print Display
Vintage botanical prints- either the real deal or printable reproductions- are on trend in a big way these days. Displaying them in a vintage window like this is a great way to achieve this look on a budget. And you KNOW we have lots of windows in our stores…
Repurposed Lamp Plant Stands
Looking for a unique way to display your favorite houseplants with varying heights? Repurpose a few old lamps from the ReStore and turn them into gorgeous plant stands!
DIY Wooden Cactus Decor
Spot some post caps or fence tops at the ReStore? Turn them into no-pain cactus “plants” with this amazing transformation. (Bonus- no watering or sunlight needed!)
Light Fixture Plant Cloche
There are ALWAYS a plentiful supply of outdated light fixtures in our stores. But they can be easily reimagined as decorative plant cloches like this! What a great way to add a chic touch AND protect your plant baby from pets or small children.
Clipboard Botanical Print Wall Art
Have you ever seen a pile of plain clipboards in our office supply section and wondered, “What could I do with those?”. Well, today’s your lucky day because check out how awesome they are for displaying trendy botanical prints.
Lampshade Plant Stands
Old lampshades can be a bit big and outdated, can’t they? Well, put that to good reuse by upcycling them into these trendy plant stands!
Boho Stenciled Bookends
Stenciling is a great way to put a fresh spin on wooden items you find at one of our ReStores. And for a unique way to add a touch of plant love, why not use botanically inspired stencils like I did on these bookends?
Banana Hanger Plant Holder
Sure, they’re meant to hold a bunch of bananas. But holding a sweet little potted plant is SO much more exciting. What a whimsical way to show off your favorite plant baby, right?
Stay Green, Habitat Shoppers!
I love all the different ways you can incorporate houseplants and botanical décor with these upcycling ideas, don’t you? And if you make any botanically inspired projects from something you found at our ReStores, we’d love to see!
