This was maybe going to be a little bit of a DIY post, but it's actually even less than that. A very short version of how to make a window plant shelf for barely any money.
2x4, saw, paint
cleats made from 2x4 bits, Dremel (to fit window mouldings), paint
drill pilot holes
screws, plants (and a hard to see, dark photo). Done.
It's a window shelf that for some reason, I've been dying to have in my life. Martha had a great version on her site like a year(+?) ago, and ever since, I've been itching for one.
My house doesn't get tons of sun, and keeping a plant on the actual window sill seems like it's awfully tempting to Team Cat, so this is such a good solution. Especially when winter hits and I have to move a few of my littler guys inside. It's the little things, no?
(Oh, and as a sidenote, I definitely finally gave up on the latest avocado growing adventure, and realize maybe I'm just not cut out for farming the green guys. Moral: know your strengths?)
