I went to the Tropical Dream Center (aka my favorite place in Okinawa) again a few weeks ago and this time around, this beautiful display caught my attention:
Flowers in frames? Who'd have thought. But I loved the idea of it. So I set out to do something similar in my own house. If only I had a greenhouse to go all out with plants and flowers. But I don't, so this project is downsized a bit.
First, I bought some frames at a thrift store for $3 a piece. Then I found these little shelves at Japan's version of Ikea for $3 a piece as well. I had thought of building my own floating shelves to have more space, but for the price and convenience, I just decided to go with store bought. So, the total cost of the project was $12!
I thought about hanging them on the sides of my origami wall
But ultimately I thought it looked better on the side wall next to the window. All it took was a little gorilla glue to glue the frame to the shelf, and voila, the finished product!
