Okay, let’s chat. There are a few things that come to mind that I’m just flat not good at…sports, laundry, and keeping orchids alive for longer than a solid week…to name a few. For real…one ice cube, ice chips, fertilizer, half light, full light, no light….whatever the shiz people say it takes to keep them alive…I fail miserably every time. I gave in. I caved to the faux. Not normally a fan of silk flowers, but I made an exception here because #1 I love the look of orchids and #2 they serve as the perfect solution for this troublesome space. Not going to lie, I shopped around for some sort of pre-made solution and let me tell you, people are proud of their faux florals…they are SO expensive! I decided to get a little crafty and DIY something and I have to tell you I love it and love that I spent well under $50 on it! See below….

Love it! So pretty and your GIF turned out awesome. Love the silver planter too.I did one today too. Have been using them for a while now. My favorite was the art tutorial GIF I did. They are awesome on Google+ too.

I completely thought that urn was silver metal, great job with the spray paint! What a pretty, happy little corner!

I have to comment on this because I have the exact same space. I filled it with a cookbook holder and cookbook and it is a seasonal cookbook, so I change the pages to reflect the seasons (it has nice color pictures) I also stuck a plant and my silver salt and pepper holders there on a nice tray. I like your version too!

I'm sure I could even kill a faux orchid! This is really pretty though!

I can't keep anything alive so this would be perfect for me!

Beautiful, I would never guess it was fake! I love how reflective that paint is too!
