I am the first to admit that I do not have a green thumb … not even a little bit. I have killed almost every plant I have ever owned, and now largely rely on my amazing roommate to keep my one plant alive. You name the plant, I’ve probably killed it, which is why this post may be a little surprising for some of you, and hey even for me!
I decided to create an herb wall in my kitchen/dining area. It is a place in my house that gets a lot of sunlight and is very close to the sink so I should remember to water it. I made this wall a little over a month ago, and just finally got all the herbs in to show you the finished product. Pro tip: do not try to grow your herbs from a seed unless you are extremely patient and good at remembering to water your plants.
What You’ll Need:
Step 1: The first thing you’ll want to do is spray paint your small buckets. It took about two coats to achieve full coverage for me. Be sure to let these dry for at least an hour to avoid getting fingerprints on the pots.
Step 2: Punch a hole through with the nail and hammer within the first quarter inch of the bucket.
Step 3: Pot your herbs. This is a great article all about growing potted herbs, in case you are like me and need a little extra help.
Step 4: Hammer the nail into the wall and slide the pot over the nail. You can choose to either hammer the whole pot onto the wall or make the hole big enough to slide the pot over the nail to easily take it off the wall when you need to water your plants.
This was a very simple DIY and it added a lot to my dining area. Next step for me is to make some yummy recipes like this basil pesto.
