February 25, 2015 - progress on my peperomia prostrata planter - I found a suitable base at Marshalls: set of 3 bamboo cutting boards for $9.99. The middle size (8”x10”) fit perfectly. Two issues: I wanted to elevate the base with feet of some kind and the handle made the whole base look too much like a cutting board. I solved both issues by cutting off the handle portion of the board and using those pieces to prop up the entire base. The effect is the base sort of floats above the surface. I’m quite happy with how this looks…now on to painting!
