a little switcharoo

plant container switcharooplant container switcharooI’ve had my fiddle fig leaf in this basket for awhile now, but wasn’t entirely feeling it. I wanted a white ceramic pot, but not sure if I’m totally feeling that either. Then as I was cleaning up last week, I saw this wire basket that hds just been sitting in the hallway (it used to be the girl’s laundry basket) and thought that might just do it. I sewed a large canvas bag of sorts to put the pot in (I also repotted my tree) and then put that in the wire basket. I definitely like this solution a lot better and it is working with something I already had. Now, that wicker basket is going to be put to some other use for sure. There are always plenty of uses for good baskets.

I’m pretty indecisive when it comes to plant containers, just as I am with pillows. I’m just not really good at coordinating them together. Are you an indoor plant person? If so, what containers do you like to use inside? I’d love some ideas!

  • The wire basket suits your fig plant!
    It looks more garden-like, love it.
    As long as it’s in the garden i do like almost every plant and flower, but inside i’m not easy to persuade.
    At my work at Villa Augustus we sell huge Pantone pots for in- and outdoor use. They are pretty cool too!
    I will make a picture of them soon. cheers!

    omg, how inspiring, i seriously love that! what a great idea! It totally changes the look. I have a fiddle fig leaf plant too that I was hoping would grow into a tree one day, but it’s dying on me 🙁 so sad. I wonder if tay will let me buy a bigger one, lol. i’ve always wanted an indoor tree!

    I love it. I love inside plants. i have a couple in candle holder/lanterns (the big ones, of course!). I love your idea. Thanks. oh! I have a money tree that seems to love it inside my house…they are pretty trees that represent good luck and fortune.

  • I love wire baskets! Plant containers can get pricey, so right now all of my plants are in cheap-o planters. That needs to change soon!

    I used your idea on painting terra cotta pots for my 6 little houseplants and they look great! They are now sitting in our living room and make it look so cheery. Love to see pictures of your house and decorating style!

    i love these: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30165805/ They are neutral but have a worn earthy feel about them. but i LOVE the wire basket more! looks great.

    Really like the wire basket – it puts the focus on the plant and is not “heavy” like the basket.
