made these simple shelves out of half inch maple (the same stuff the planter boxes are made out of). I mounted a 2 bulb fluorescent fixture under each and did my best to hide the cords. Hopefully this will be enough light for them.
Houseplants always brighten up a space. Even if the room doesn't have a lot of natural light, there are still plants you can find that will add vibrant color, interesting shapes, and a little life to even.
