Oh my stars, y’all! We now have one thing hanging on our wall! I do know… it’s the little issues that thrill us lately on the new home. On this case, it’s wall decor.
Since going paint loopy in the lounge, breakfast nook, eating room, and laundry room (extra on that house later), I used to be actually itching to hold one thing on these freshly painted partitions.
The opposite week, my mother and I went junking and I discovered these two chippy vintage banisters for virtually a music. I had no clue what I used to be going to do with them, however they have been simply too fascinating to move up. They usually appeared like the right Trash to Treasure Tuesday sort of challenge, which I’m lastly leaping again into as we speak after a 2 month hiatus throughout our transfer. (Should you don’t know what T2T Day is, just a few blogger pals and I take trash or thrift finds and rework them for our properties. Their makeovers are on the backside of this submit. You may see all of my previous Trash to Treasure initiatives right here if you’d like some thrifty concepts.)
Whereas I used to be planning our breakfast nook, it lastly hit me… a wall planter!
Should you ever occur upon a pair of banisters, bundle of spindles, or a few previous ladders, I whipped up a fast tutorial so that you can make one your self.

To cease the chipping on the banisters and protect the aged paint, I gave them a fast couple of skinny coats of the clear matte acrylic.
Then, Robert and I hung them up on the wall utilizing the wall anchors (since they’re not on studs), D-rings, degree, and energy drill.
After I was on the hunt for some planter hooks, I found some on sale at Crate and Barrel that ended up being cheaper than Walmart. (What? When does that ever occur?)
I initially deliberate on getting some cheapo terra cotta clay pots and whitewashing them to look aged, however couldn’t for the lifetime of me discover any that have been the best measurement for the planter hooks.
These cement pots ended up being the right measurement however have been a little bit costlier than I’d deliberate on spending. Buuuut they’re cute. So it’s nonetheless a win, I suppose. My junk discover simply wound up being pricier than I assumed it will be.
I can’t recover from how actual they search for round $6… and I don’t have to fret about conserving them alive, so there’s that. They wouldn’t have a prayer dwelling in our darkish window-less breakfast nook the place they’re hanging now anyway. (Should you don’t have an IKEA close to you although, these are really cute too.)
Because the pots are a tad heavy, we secured the planter hooks with wall anchors. I really like how a lot they’ve brightened up our breakfast nook! Like a complete breath of contemporary air with all these cozy textures happening.
I’m restraining myself a little bit bit with tremendous rugged, distressed issues on this home, however there’s a sure magnificence to this one which marries the farmhouse look with the extra formal model on this home with these curvy particulars on the banisters.
Fairly quickly, I’ll be sharing my large plans for the breakfast nook, however that is actually a kind of initiatives that units my wheels turning with extra concepts.
This breakfast nook was so black and white earlier than, so I really like that it’s feeling a lot hotter with this punch of greenery proper once we stroll via the again storage door. It’s, fortunately, nonetheless shallow sufficient that we don’t stumble upon it once we stroll in.
One factor’s for positive although, I’ve by no means seen something like this challenge earlier than, not with banisters at the very least.
I can’t wait to share what else is occurring on this spot very quickly! It’s going to be very traditional, stylish, French, rustic, relaxed, however elegant. That’s most likely a bizarre description, however I hope it’ll make extra sense later.
