Color My World

We all know about my love for Apartment Therapy.  So of course I was going to enter the Room for Color contest, with my lovely sunny living room. :)  Check me out here!

A New Form of Salad Bar

It's not really season-appropriate, but I'm going to continue my theme of plants/gardening from yesterday.  This is also an inspiration from Apartment Therapy, but from a while back.  They had a post on building a salad table, which is basically a compact kitchen garden, which works great for people with limited outdoor spaces, as well as it reduces pest and weed issues.  Not to mention the one pictured has amazing style and legs. :)

Be a Wallflower

Yesterday I managed to tackle the 12 square feet of our living room that was taken over by all of my plants and replant some and distribute around the house.  Most of my plants are too large for this super cool idea that I ran across on Apartment Therapy, but it's definitely been stored in my idea folder: a wall of plants.  The first one I ran across was a pegboard option, very easy to DIY:

I can see that one working well in a kitchen as a vertical herb garden.  A fancier, albeit more expensive option is the magnetic vertical garden from Urbio:

Although this option is shown on a fence, I can see it translated inside for slightly larger plants:

Maybe once the house is finally put together (if that ever happens), I will try one of these options.  Which is your favorite?

And we now resume regular programming...

I'm officially declaring that my life is back to normal.  It's not really, as the five loads of clean laundry sitting on my bed that have been taunting me can testify to, but this weekend is the first weekend in I can't even remember how long that I have no plans, and the house is slowly getting pulled together, so I'm just declaring that I will not be overwhelmed anymore. :)  Stay tuned for much more regular posts.
