What comes into your mind when you hear the words “ abandoned house? ” Most people would associate the grisly sight of cobwebs and derelict furniture with a haunted house, but this artist has a totally different outlook. She transformed a scary and abandoned property into a work of art.
Meet Lisa Waud, a florist who purchased an abandoned home in Detroit. For only $500, she brought the abandoned house back to life using only flowers! At first, people thought that she was going to remodel the property, but she exceeded their expectations by creating a flower haven.
“When you live in Detroit, it’s hard to not notice an abundance of abandoned houses, and one day, I began looking at them as a resource, and it wasn’t too much longer before I was at a city auction with my hand up.”
When she first purchased the home, every nook and corner of the abandoned house contained trash. It took her quite some time to clean up the mess. To start her project, the entire house was filled with more than 4,000 pieces of ornamental plants and flowers.

The blooms were placed strategically by Lisa herself over the course of 48 hours. Some of them were merely sitting on the floor, while other plants hang around the staircases and the windows. Some furniture was also decorated with the flowers.
The abundance of flowers resulted in a jungle-like atmosphere that mesmerizes any guests who visits. According to Lisa, she was approached by many people who were inspired by the project and would like to contribute as well:
“I have met florists I’ve always looked up to, neighbors I never would have known, and people passionate about getting involved with the project. It’s been amazing.”
Indeed, it’s amazing what a creative mind can do! This upcoming October, Lisa is planning to outdo herself by filling a second house with not just 4,000, but 11,000 of flowers.
