It's that time again! I sent a little accessory to 2 other bloggers and we all used it in our homes and are sharing them with you today! This month I asked a couple of bloggers who I am also friends with in real life. Kara from Creations by Kara lives close to me which is awesome because I am far from SLC where I feel like every other Utah blogger lives :) And the other blogger is the darling Taryn from Design Dining & Diapers.
This month our challenge was to use a cement planter.
I bought the cement planter from Walmart.com and it comes in other sizes and shapes.
I added some vinyl and used it as a pencil holder for my desk. I really only need a few things when working. Notebooks, pencils and plants! I am old school and love making notes, sketching, and writing ideas down on paper in nice notebooks and journals. I just love writing things down!
There is an epidemic at our house where we can never ever find pencils that are sharpened or that have erasers. A sharpened pencil with any kind of an eraser left is kind of like a unicorn. The kids got pencils, erasers and sharpeners for Christmas and were told to leave "mommy's" pencils alone. Or else. Now I have a place to put them where they are easy to reach.
Please excuse the mess that you can see reflected in the computer screen. HA! I am currently repainting and restyling the entire upstairs so "extra" things get shoved against that wall in the office for now.
I filled the cement planter with gravel. I considered sand but I am a klutz and I knew at some point I would probably knock it over. Gravel is easier to clean up :)
What would you have done with this cement planter?
