When I heard that Studio McGee was doing a launch with Target I was thrilled. I have been following Shea and Syd McGee from the beginning and it has been amazing to see how they have expanded their business and shop and now they are at Target! I explored the line virtually due to the current situation and ordered a few things online. My friend Cindy is sharing her finds from Studio McGee today too! Cindy has the best eye! I can’t wait to see what she found and how she’s using it in her home.
Our side door spruced up for spring with Studio Mcgee
I bought three of these black planters because in my mind they were tiny. That’s the thing about buying online. I’m terrible about looking at dimensions. Especially when my mind has an immediate perception. If I were ordering say a basket for a specific shelf, I would get out my measuring tape and really consider if it was the right size. Thankfully with a planter, I can use them anywhere.
With just a few things from Target, I spruced up my side door for spring. I’m so happy to be able to turn on the water to the outdoor hose bibs so that I could give everything a good cleaning. It was still too cold to bring out the power washer, but just a simple hosing down of the area helped immensely. We made the bench last year and the basket is from World Market. We added the new Block Print Choir Doormat from Studio McGee and the planter with some pansies. As you can see we didn’t do much, but sprucing up the door top the basement makes me happy. Just inside the door on a small landing is where our pantry is located. I go in and out of this door multiple times of day…so why not make it pretty with a mini refresh from Studio McGee?
Tip: Use an adjustable hose that easily stores in a planter
I’ve found that the easiest way to store a hose is to use an expandable hose and a small to medium size planter depending on the length of the garden hose you need. This pot is one I had from Terrain. It has a drainage hole which is important. I can easily put the hose into the pot and it drains into the pea gravel. It’s so much better than trying to wind up a hose and store on a hose hanger.
