I have really been wanting to tackle a succulent planter for some time. But unfortunately I have not the skills nor the confidence to tackle exactly what I had in mind. I wanted something to hang on the wall that would look like a pallet but be filled with succulents in the gaps. Cool, huh?
It was one of those projects that turned out so much better than I ever could have imagined and I’m really very pleased with the results. And since I’m moving shop, it will be right at home on my parents’ porch!
My dad did all of the hard work and I snapped all of the pictures. Luckily oldest nephew was around to lend a helping hand while I snapped away. I know you can’t tell it in the pic, but it’s freaking hot here. Ridiculously hot. A new resident and I commiserated and she had the best description for the Houston climate I’ve ever heard… it’s like that point where you open the dishwasher while it’s still going. At first it seems okay but then that nasty, hot and humid steam comes rolling at you and instantly makes your forehead sweat. Puff. And you’re nasty.
