A DIY Greenery Project

August 31, 2010

Last weekend I decided to tackle the area by our fireplace and style/organize the bookshelves…something I’ve really been anxious to do for a while.

.

I was inspired a couple months ago by the grassy arrangements in this picture:

design actually

.

So, here I go in my cheap attempt to capture the look…

SUPPLIES: 4 White Photo Storage Boxes (WAY cheaper than any other kind of planter), Grassy Greenery, Floral Foam

.

1. Cut floral foam to fit the box.

.

2. Use wire cutters to cut the greenery to slightly different lengths.

.

3. Poke the stems into the foam in spaced rows with the taller stems in the back.

.

4. TA DA.

.

.

Now for the BEFORE and AFTER of the book shelves…

BEFORE our bookshelves were mostly empty with a random scattering of books and accessories.

.

And AFTER.

.

Better?

Well…I considered it a successful Saturday afternoon…

.

More belly shots coming this week!
