Make a Colorful Indoor Herb Garden
–ikea socker plant pot with stand
-spray paint in your choice of colors
-spray shellac sealant
-herbs and potting soil (I planted mint, oregano, rosemary, basil, thyme, and chives.)
Step One: Begin by spray painting the exterior of the pots and letting them dry. Since you will be growing food in these containers, I wouldn’t recommend spraying the inside of the pots. But you could and then just use a plastic liner to keep a barrier between the plant roots and the spray paint.
Step Two: Once the paint is dry, coat the exterior of the pots with spray shellac. This will keep the spray paint from chipping and give the containers and nice glossy appearance.
Step Three: The last step is to assemble the pot stand and plant your herbs with your potting soil.
So simple you almost don’t need a tutorial!
Now that I have all the fresh herbs I need, I’m off to teach myself a few new recipes! If all this color isn’t your thing, feel free to try something more your taste. How cute would blush pink pots with gold lettering spelling out the herbs be?! No matter how you customize your indoor herb garden, one thing is for sure, you will have the freshest kitchen on the block! xo. Kara
