BEFORE: look at that big bare wall! We looked at it for 2 years, but I finally figured out what to do with it...
DURING: Here are the shelves up. It still looked a little bare, but I like being able to see the wall color through the shelves. We got the shelves at IKEA :)
AFTER: Here it is all decorated and with the rug and everything (we ended up using the rug we already had). All of the decor is stuff that we packed away when we first put our last house up for sale, so it has been in boxes for three years!! It was a lot of fun unpacking and arranging everything! Gonna have to re-do it with some holiday decor pretty soon...
I took a class at the NC Arboretum on Tuesday about how to make hypertufa containers. These are outdoor (or indoor) planters that are lighter in weight than concrete. They look natural-ish. The round one is the one I made in class. I had enough material left over to make up two more small ones when I got home. These are just out of their molds today. They will be in the garage "curing" for another week, then they will sit out in the yard for a month or two before they are ready for plants. I'm excited to see the final products!

We're thinking we might have to start our own cache somewhere....
