I’m almost ready to reveal the Hallway Makeover! Today I’m sharing just one piece of that puzzle 😉
We have a little wall niche between two bedroom doors in our upstairs hallway. It used to have a phone jack in it. We don’t even have a land line (we use our cells exclusively) so I ripped it out and filled the holes with wood filler. Then I repainted it semi-gloss white like the rest of the trim upstairs.
I wanted it to be a pretty spot but I couldn’t really sit anything in it because the kids or the cats would likely knock it down in two seconds. I finally decided to make this mini hanging planter. I originally wanted to make a large hanging planter to hang over by the window but thought this would be more fun.
I had the round wood bowl (plus 3 more) lying around from a flea market trip in Nags Head, NC. I love them! I buy them anytime I see them. I’d love to have some larger wood bowls too. I then lucked out and found the square bowl for $3 at Home Goods. Wahoo!
It’s a pretty easy DIY, just takes a little patience (which is usually all I have). You can find lots of macrame/hanging planter tutorials on the net so I won’t go into details. I did adjust my lengths since this is a small planter compared to others. I used cotton rope I found at Lowe’s. I added some succulents but need to go pick up a few more since the bowls aren’t quite full enough. I hung them with a little golf cup hook.
Keep checking back this week for a few more DIY’s in the space! And here’s a sneak peak of the hallway makeover. You can see how I painted the window mullions black. Wow, remember those brown walls? So glad they’re GONE GONE GONE!
Whatcha working on this week? Relaxing? That’s what I will be doing NEXT week. What do you think of hanging planters? Too trendy? Too 70’s? I kinda love them! Have a good day!!
