Box Planter For Above the TV

Happy New Year Everyone!

Today I am sharing some changes to our family room since taking down all the Christmas decor. You can see this room decorated for Christmas HERE.

You know that I am not a huge fan of wall mounted TV’s, especially above the fireplace. However, some rooms are set up best that way, which is the case for our room.

I had garland up above the TV over the holidays and loved it. That sparked an idea.

If you were here last summer you might remember the Tool Box Table Runner that I made for the dining room.

Well, I spray painted it in Dark Walnut Spray Paint by Rustoleum. Then, to let a little green through, I took a razor blade to it. I thought the green color would be too bright against the dark wood. I didn’t want it to be that noticeable.

I attached D Rings to the top back of the box. Drilled screws into the wood wall and hung the box up.

The box had real greens in it before but the plants needed to be re potted because their roots were crowded. I cleaned the dirt out and put Spanish moss and faux greenery inside. The greens are two garlands intertwined.

If you don’t follow us on Instagram then let me tell you about the other things that are new here.

Notice the two lamps to your left? Yay! I found some that were not too bulky and they give off a soft, direct light. They are from Homegoods and only $60 each.

This might be over kill on the faux greens but I bought these hanging plants for another space in the house but hung them here for now. (pretend you don’t see the cords in the background)

Since the planters are light weight they can just hang from our stocking hooks, which are not actually hooks but furniture nails.

There it is! No more Christmas but still a lot of greens.

Oh, Holly- I really like how you did that- it takes your eye up and away from the TV when it is not on. Your faux greenery looks great and a good job with the 'box' with bits of green showing through.Have a wonderful week- xo Diana

I don't know why I thought you took the tv down. I would love for my living room to be without a tv but I guess that is just not possible in this day and age. I love this and I love your greenery. I hope the boys are doing well back at school. I love following on Instagram.
