I spend a lot of time making the inside of our home look groovy, but I rarely (if ever) do anything to the outside. After installing my new Urban Mettle planter onto the front gate of my rental, I couldn’t believe I had waited so long to add a personal touch to the entrance to our home. Not only did it completely transform the look of the entrance, it actually beautified the whole block. Also, I will never underestimate the power of having something I love right in that threshold between the public and one’s private space again. The planter makes me smile every time I go through the front gate–which is huge. AND makes the numbers on the house actually visible–which is also huge because how annoying is it when house numbers are impossible to find!?
Urban Mettle is a father-daughter team. (How cute is that?!) Holly, an interior designer by trade designs the planters and her father welds them. Cool, right? Their collaboration and their Etsy shop are brand spankin’ new and I’m thrilled to be able to offer you all a chance to win one of these lovely planters that can come with or without your address numbers. ( One brilliant part of the design is that the numbers are magnetic–so if you move you can take the planter with you when you go to your next spot, and you can order new numbers for the new address.
