A couple of months ago, I came across some really fun wood crates at H&M Home, which, by the way, is totally my new favorite place to shop! About half of my master bathroom makeover that I revealed yesterday came from there as well.
But back to the crates…I knew they would make perfect planter boxes in my kitchen – the hard part was deciding which ones I really liked all the color and text options. You can check them all out here:
To turn my two new crates into flower boxes, I bought a few bricks of floral foam.
Then filled with a second and third stem on each end of the box. Three stems of hydrangeas perfectly filled each crate – making them look full, but not squished.
Finally, I lifted the blooms and added a leaves at the ends of the crates.
I tried adding additional leaves, but discovered that they just covered up the lettering, which I didn’t want to do.
I love the way these quick and easy indoor flower boxes add a bright pop of color to the kitchen, and I’m happy to know that they’ll look great all through the spring and summer and there is nothing my black thumb can do to kill them!
The rough, natural texture of the wood and the stenciled lettering of the H&M crates creates a nice contrast against out sleek glass sideboard and modern decor.
