While my book is in editing, I need to occupy myself. I can't work on another story because I don't want to have to put it aside when my editor gets back to me. As such, I usually take a little break and work on other things, as well as read as much as I can of other writers.
So what did I do during this down time? I created a living wall in my living room! How did I do it? I'll tell you.
First I hung up a pegboard and painted it white.
I wanted to make this wall was as sustainable as possible. I wanted to use things I already had (like the peg board, which was just sitting in my garage). Therefore, I decided to save some plastic water bottles from the recycle bin and repurpose them. So, I cut them in half and used a hole punch to put holes in them.
Next, I painted the bottles green, and put strings through the holes. At this point, I moved some of the house plants I already had to the board. Nox was very curious, but he cried in vain because I made sure he could not reach them.
I cut and painted more bottles as well as a 1 x 4 board. Then it was time for a trip to the plant nursery!
