I had never given much thought to plant stands until my husband brought home a Bird of Paradise (  Move over fiddle…

Much of the content I produce on my blog generates from my experiences transforming my outdated 1980's home through DIY projects and interior design. And while I may make the experience look like rainbows, butterflies and the stuff that dreams are made of, I need to be honest.....we…
