I'm trying out some new things in the dining room.
It's hard to get a good photo because it's against a window but I brought my outdoor large planter in side the house.
I usually have large boston ferns growing in this during the warm weather months outside but
my new potting bench will be going where this usually sits and I just thought on a whim...
"Hey! Why don't I bring it inside?"
This jade plant came from my friend Kevin of
Hollywood forever, Kevin fame.
That's Kevin's mantel and this is Kevin's staircase...
His house is amazing and I'm not the only one who thinks so.
He and his home are in the latest issue of Flea Market Style.
This is a great issue by the way.
Anyway, back to the jade plant.
Kevin sent it to me in a box last summer hacked off his giant jade plant he has growing outside his
This is how it looked after I planted it then.
I replanted it the other day because it was outgrowing its pot.
I fear it hasn't been getting enough light.
I'm hoping this new spot in the window will keep it happy.
I just threw some other things in this stand to fill it up for now.
I can imagine this being a place to do rotating displays.
Wouldn't it be pretty filled with orchids and african violets?
I don't think that's going to happen though...I'm not into taking care of houseplants.
That fern is fake. Kevin's jade plant is all I can manage.
What do you think? Do you like this in the dining room?
Here you can see it with a glimpse of the shutters that I recently brought in the house too.
They are in great shape. I just have to decide what color I want to paint them.
I have them on both sides of the dining room window.
I want them to have a very distressed finished whatever color I decide on.
Mom said she liked them as is...but I think they must be painted.
Are you having a good week?
