Flea Market Find - Planter

What do you get when you find an iron planter at a flea market for TEN BUCKS, a hanging water hyacinth cone-shaped plant basket and an indoor plant that only requires low light and minimal watering?



The only thing I have to figure out now, is if I want it in the Kitchen, next to the Hutch:






Or in the Dining Room, in this little "dead spot":



In this photo, you can see where the two spots are in relation to each other:



If I put it in the Dining Room, I'd like to hang something on the wall above it.
Maybe rustic votive holders?

So, what do you guys think?

Dining:



Or Kitchen:



I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I like it in the 'dead spot' in the dining room. It distracts focus from the beautiful hutch in the kitchen.

Meredith said...

I agree with barbie... i like it much better in the dining room.

3 for in the "dead spot".

Kymm said...

"dead spot" in the dining room for sure!

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Yep...It brings life to the dead spot!

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

That was a great find! I need that! I vote that you put it in the dead spot in the dining room.

Devon Dumpling said...

The dead spot in the dining room - I think that it looks rather insigificant when placed next to the furniture whereas in the dead spot you can see its beauty x

Jessica said...

personally, i like it in the dead spot!

Chris said...

I think it looks nicer with the kitchen hutch.

G said...

ANOTHER VOTE FOR THE "DEAD SPOT"

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

I definitely like it in the dining room better - it pops against the wall there where it seems to get lost against the hutch.

Michelle said...

Love the planter. I vote for the dining room too.

Ashley said...

Dining Room - For Sure

Natalie said...

Another dead spot vote...although if you didn't have that dead spot I would've said it was perfect next to the hutch.

(I'm hoping just a smidge of your creativity will rub off on me through your blog. Just a drop, please, because I am blown away with what you create.)

Anna said...

I've just come across your blog and love it!

My vote is for the dead space and perhaps a small framed picture above the planter.
Good luck!

It looks like it fits really nice in the kitchen. Maybe a little too casual for the dining. Great find!

I like it in the "dead spot".

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

That's a beauty, Layla...I'm gonna vote for the DR too. Of course, it could look good anywhere.

Kerri said...

I really like it best with the hutch in the kitchen. But, I do agree that you should put something in the corner of the dining room. I'm thinking some kind of small round table that stands about 3-4 feet high. Then you could top it with a fun bowl or basket for keys or mail, etc. Or you could put a vase with flowers or something on top. So, that's my idea. But I think either way you choose will look great!

Sunny said...

My vote is the dead spot!

Sarah Kate said...

I agree, the "dead spot". I love what you have done with it. I always am looking for things to give my houseplants height.

I vote for the dining room dead spot.

Michelle said...

I like it by the hutch. :) It looks good next to the black. Great find!

Carla said...

I think it looks great next to the hutch. It seems to stand out more against the black.

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Looks great either place. I would probably go for the 'dead' spot though...could you move it around?

Chris said...

Dead spot! Definitely. I've been a bad friend lately. I'll e-mail you why, but I just wanted to check in with you. I LOVED the flea market finds. I'm serious--every single thing, I adored.

Screaming Meme said...

Well, when staging a home you want to make every area count...I like it best in the "dead zone"...lol...I think it makes that area come alive...and the hutch is so bold in it's self...You'll have fun finding something special to hang above the corner...Let us know what you decide on! I love your find! Meme

Cute, cute, cute! I say dining room!!

Tammy said...

I love it in the "dead spot" too, I think it really shines when placed there!
I also wanted to say that I LOOOOOVE your latest flea market inspired blogging splurge!! You are really posting some GREAT finds and you have a wonderful creative mind when it comes to exactly how to use them!!! Kuuuudos!! Have a great wknd Layla!

Moi said...

i think the "dead spot" by name alone begs for some attention! What a cute find - very creative!

Inspired Kara said...

The dining room dead spot. The kitchen already has a lot of "weight" in that area and isn't as needy as the dead spot.

Good Morning,

Definitely the dead spot, it gets lost next to the hutch and both are such pretty pieces they should be spot-lighted !!

Have a great day,
Kathy :)

Katie said...

I think the "dead spot" needs it!

The Pampered World said...

Love your blog! I'm saying the "dead spot." Looks like that is going to be the winner. :)

fascinatingfinds said...

I think you need two of them.... Cheryl

Judy said...

At first I was trying to figure out which flea market you had been to then a post further down found that you'd been to J&G's! I love that place, in fact the girl that cuts my hair has a booth there, real cute stuff. I also love the new one in Prattville down by Big Lots. I got some stuff there last Friday and may have to go back today....I see some of your pics look like you've been there as well. Have you seen the one in front across from the cash register with all the white cottagey stuff!

Dining room for sure!

megan said...

In the dead spot in the dining room! Love it there! Very cool find.

Teacats said...

Another vote for the dead spot -- quite wonderful there!
