Elevate Your Green Thumb With Plant Shelves
Nothing screams sophistication like a home lined with plant shelves. We can't get enough of them. Here are some of our favorites.

Bookshelves really aren't just for books. Ikea furniture is iconic and the uses are seemingly endless. Look how @ourbarnesyard styled this shelf with plants and other decor pieces:

Leaves, succulents, and ceramic pottery fill up this modern, geometric shelf. If you're not so much a bookworm, consider giving your old empty shelf new life by using them to display plants and pots instead.

Green gets even greener with your pots!
Upcycle anything from jars to empty beauty product containers for your plant pots. You can get as creative as you want with this, just make sure that the container you will use is safe for growing.
Always make sure to prepare your container before planting. For example, wash out any remaining product, make drainage holes, or line the container bottom.

Use Unconventional Pots

You could try applying your own fun clay appliques, like these flowers:

Don't shy away from vines! Build indoor trellises to help them thrive and crawl up and around indoors. You can even get them to grow into different shapes.
Or you know, you can just let your plants do their thing.
