Last week I found three vintage brass planters at a flea market. I almost didn't bring them home, because I was having a hard time imaging them in our space. I had no idea where we would hang them. But it was one of those times where I figured, if I left them behind, I would probably regret it the next day, so I brought them home.
We had a video shoot coming up, so we decided to hang them in the living room, opposite our hanging wicker chair. First, we added new wires to the planters, making them different heights. Then we added three plants to the planters, still in their original containers. Thanks for the time saving tip, Elise!We chose three different plants that would spill over the planters. My dad told me these plants would grow really fast, and towards the light. So when one side starts looking much longer than the other, I will just give the planters a half turn. 🙂Our dad is awesome! He helped us hang these. Thanks, Dad!!
I'm so happy with the final result. I was worried the brass would feel too fancy (we're not fancy!), but I think it adds just the right amount of "shiny" to our living area. Have you hung planters in your home? I'd love to hear your tips and tricks! xo. Elsie
ps. An instagram follower pointed out that there are similar planters available at UO right now. Fun!
These are awesome. Great find!
Omg! Your app has finally arrived 🙂
I can’t wait for it to come on android!! 😀 😀
These are gorgeous! They suit your room so well. I’m on the lookout for some cut indoor plants. What sort of plants are they?
I’m still trying to convince the boy that we should do something similar! Hopefully your pretty pictures will help!
What a great idea !!
I would love to plant some herbs in those planters so then I could have some fresh for cooking..
The planters look awesome, I’m kinda inspired to try something similar.
They look amazing right there!
Love them, think they fit in perfectly with your aesthetic. Great job!
These planters look so cool. Funky, not fancy. 🙂
The philodendron – the lowest hanging one – can be cut and rooted to start more plants. They are very hard to kill so are perfect for anyone with a black thumb. These hangers are gorgeous!
They look beautiful by the window with the sun reflecting on the brass!
They look great! I want them, too! 😉
Your home is such a gem. You are lucky to get to own a piece of history. You even have the original picture rail around the top of your rooms!
Beautiful planters! So cute, you can see you standing on the couch taking photos in the reflection! Hehe.
Very 70’s! To keep the plants from getting too lopsided, don’t wait until they grow towards the light, just turn them 1/2 turn every time you water. Keeps them more even. I’ve done this for years. (People with too much time on their hands will tell you to turn them every day. I’m not those people.)
These are incredible!
They look fantastic. Buying these was the perfect risk to take! 🙂
