Last week I showed you our newly painted bathroom. This week I will give you a glimpse into our newly painted, completely pointless, glorified hallway we call the conservatory.
This room was built for growing plants. That is its raison d'etre. My father-in-law even had tomatoes growing in here, but I harbor no such ambitions. Houseplants, fine. An indoor vegetable garden, not fine. Mostly we walk through this room to get to other places. Nevertheless, since it is here, it may as well look nice. I forgot to take any before pictures, but this will give you an idea of the color it used to be:
I had a little money set aside, which I used to buy this terrarium. I'd had my eye on it at Hobby Lobby for months and finally took the plunge when it was marked 50% off. A few plants, a little sand (scrounged from the garage), and it looks fabulous!
I think once we are finished, I may decide this room isn't a waste of space after all!
