You can just feel it…
…when someone is staring at you.
There I was at the hardware store in front of the shiny galvanized duct work materials contemplating a project when I felt them ~ eyes on me…
I turned to see an elderly gray haired gentleman staring at me.
“Not everyday do you see a young (I liked him instantly) lady preparing to install duct work”.
I was so deep in the DIY zone, I didn’t respond right away. So he launched into exactly how I should install all those shiny pieces.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him I was re-purposing an ‘end cap’ into a succulent dish garden! Oh well, now I can probably install heating & AC now if the need arises.
I hope you are as impressed with my re-purpose as my pal at the HW store was with the idea of me installing my own duct work!
This couldn’t be an easier project.
Buy an end cap at your local hardware store. I like the fluted ones the best. ( $6.99 )
End caps come in a variety of sizes mine is 8″ with a 2.5 lip. Perfect for small succulents.
Then pick up a bag of small pebbles, cactus soil and some succulents.
- Place a layer of pebbles in the bottom of the cap
- Add a thin layer of soil, then arrange your succulents
- Distribute more soil between the plants
- Add a top layer of pebbles. This layer will help the plants stay in position.
Maybe not as impressive as installing HV/AC myself, but more fun!
Have you re-purposed anything from the hardware store? Do share…
