Hey Guys, its that time of year to start growing your garden! I’ve had these kitchen canisters for the longest time and thought it would be great to repurpose them into an Indoor Herb Garden. I’ve always wanted an herb garden, so this weekend I gave it try. I decided to start out small to see how it works out, as everyone that knows me, knows I don’t have a green thumb. So join me, lets see how this works out!
Kitchen Canisters before transformation…
Since I’m transforming my kitchen canisters into an Indoor Herb Garden, I had to drill holes on the bottom for water to escape when watering the herbs. I used my Black & Decker Drill and a Diamond Tip Bit.
Wipe down the canisters very well to remove any dust or chips from drilling the holes. I taped the top of the opening, before painting with my favorite spray paint from, RUST-O-LEUM Painters Touch Ultra Cover Paint & Primer in Satin Heirloom White. Let Dry for about 20 minutes…
While the paint was drying, I removed the glass from the lids. To keep the glass from shattering everywhere, I taped the glass with painters tape and firmly tapped it with a hammer, until the glass was loosened. When removing the tape, the glass just peeled off.
Then with a small piece of sandpaper I gently wiped the canisters to give them the distressed look.
Basil, Rosemary and Thyme
Now that the canisters are completed, its time to plant that herb garden!
I added soil to the canisters about halfway in each and gently tucked each herb plant into the canister and topped with more soil. Watered and Done!
This DIY Kitchen Canister Indoor Herb Garden only took one hour complete. It was so easy and I love the results, so simple and natural!
I hope you enjoyed todays DIY Project, Keep checking back to see what I’m up to next.
