{ DIY Thrifty Summer Farmhouse Succulent Ladder Display }

Heyyyyyy pals! I wanted to pop in here today on the blog to share something so cute, but so simple that I was almost hesitant about posting it..but I mean this is my happy place & hopefully yours so I wanted to share something that I did the other day in a little corner in our dining room. As stated for the last few months I've been craving bringing the garden/greenhouse style into our home with cute little plants etc.. I mean I even have a real Lemon Button Fern in our kitchen that's still kicking..I mean WHO AM I haha?! I've had this white vintage ladder from my grams for quite sometime & I love it hanging in this little corner..but it needed something fun for summer that was on the thrifty side & easy to switch out etc.. You see where I'm going with this ha..the creative juices got flowing & I decided to bring more garden charm in & use the ladder to hold some of my faux succulents I've collected & terracotta pots I've picked up at stores, markets, thrifts & so on. This whole project literally cost no more than $15! Come see this charming little space below...

This new handmade wooden bench is another summer fav of mine! I stole it from this spot HERE in our home for this post, but think I may keep it here! The wire basket, bench & large terracotta pots are all thrift finds.. The pillows are from @target & the watering can is from @homegoods.

I've collected these little faux succulents, plain terracotta pots, & rustic ones from all over. None of them were more than $2. Maybe one day I will fill them with real succulents..but I mean lets not get too crazy hahaha..I am working on my #blackthumb ha.

Side Note: You can use any ladder with a decent ledge step. Paint white or leave rustic weathered wood, add the succulents / pots & voila you have a cute summer display! You can find vintage ladders in the trash, markets, shops etc..

I have something to admit to you guys...I literally just plopped these up on the ladder..no particular order, color or anything. I have been super busy & just set them there & started snapping photos..I guess sometimes that's the best way to get that "effortless" cozy look.. I love these cute corners in our home. I've said this before, but I'm on a mission to love this house & make it as cute as possible while going on 3.5 years of searching for a home that fits both mine + Mark's business needs.

I hope you guys liked this quick DIY post. I'm sorry it was a bit short, but I have been so busy with getting our lower level in order, cleaning, getting our patio spruced up, life & EVERYTHING!
