As summer rolls around, I find myself getting more and more “pinspired” especially for projects on our patio. One of the walls in our dining room has been begging for a bit of a makeover. Alan and I cannot decide on artwork so I thought about bringing some of the greenery from our patio into the house. Our living and dining rooms spill out onto our patio, so I’ve been looking for decor items and projects that pull together the spaces so they become an extension of one another. I came across this copper hanging plants DIY and knew it would be the perfect accent to our dining room. Rust-Oleum® Universal Spray has the perfect Copper tone that fits the mid century and contemporary tone of our house. Plus, plants and succulents help make a home more welcoming and I wanted to create a warm space in our dining room.
These copper hanging plants are not only a cinch to make, but they add a rustic modern charm to any space. They also make a great hostess gift if you’re looking for something handmade and unique!
