Ever seen an idea for your home and wanted to try it? Like every one who loves Pinterest I keep seeing images of those wall hanging flower baskets, the ones you hang outside your front door and fill with pretty plants, being used as wall storage in the home.
So, having taken it home, I asked Hubby if he'd put it up in the kitchen over the weekend. Hubby didn't even question why I wanted to hang an outdoors flower planter up in the kitchen, bless him! All he asked me was "where do you want it put?"
He's known me for so many years, I suppose he just assumes I have a plan in mind and he's happy to go along with it :) Thank you sweetheart xx Well, onto the wall it went and it looks like this...
I'd asked Hubby to attach the planter to the tile backsplash on my baking wall. I love this part of our kitchen!
the fabulous little trolley I still adore) worktop and open shelves.
If you missed it you can see the makeover post here and if you'd like to take a tour of our kitchen walls you can find it here. You can find some rather cool storage ideas we've implemented since here and also here. Our wee kitchen isn't fancy but we love it :)
Looking at the above image I may have to declutter the counter a little again :) Will we take a closer look...
Next to the boxes is a cute little container with a built in scoop in the lid which we use for our furbaby Jade's Iams (which is a kibble or a dry dog food) and sitting on top is her treat jar :)
Sitting side by side next to Jade's nibbles are three glass candy jars which are home to little individual serving sized containers of marmalade and jams. Above these are bananas in their new home :)
To recap then honeys, does the planter work as storage? Yes, I think it does. I'm thinking though of sewing a little cotton liner to pop inside. Any thoughts anyone?
From the gardening section straight to our kitchen wall then :) What do you think honeys? Have you tried this? If so, what do you use them for?
