Hello friends! Today I want to show you a fun new way to display your plants. It's a little something I tried out a few months ago.

A while back we installed open shelving in our dining area for additional storage. But soon I wanted to change things up a bit (Surprise!). And my first undertaking was to fill it up with plants.

If you are up for it, there are 3 complicated steps to this project. 

1. Collect your plants.

2. Plop them on the shelves.

3. Stand back and admire your living wall of art.

The dark green monstera leaf although faux, is perfectly at home with its living counterparts.


I no longer have some of these plants because they went to live on a farm in a greenhouse. (Insert tears here).
While we are on that subject, click here for some easy care houseplants that I have managed to keep alive.

I loved having my plants up here. Unfortunately, this spot did not receive enough sunlight and the gang had to be split up. But it did make a nice display for a few days.

If you have open shelving in a spot that receives good natural light, I'm green. With envy.

But seriously, if you do then here's a tip - a plant shelfie would be a super cool way to show off your collection! The vertical shelving gives you much more room compared to a traditional plant stand(s).

You can also style it with a few books and boxes, all while keeping the plants the star.

It will also serve as a great backdrop for a human selfie. Now isn't that reason enough to try this at home? If that doesn't convince you, then well...I don't know what will.
