This is my rendition of a little herb garden I saw on Pinterest. Started with some tin cans, and spray painted them red. Drilled holes in the bottom for drainage. After a couple of weeks, I covered all but the top strip with painter's tape. I waited primarily because I was busy, but waiting helps the first coat of paint to cure so that the painter's tape doesn't peel it off.
The next step was to spray-paint the top strip with chalkboard paint. (Have I mentioned that I'm in LOVE with chalkboard paint?)
After that layer dried, I peeled off the tape, filled the cans with potting soil, and planted herb seeds. Set in a sunny kitchen window, and watered occasionally, they soon sprouted in the cheery picture at the beginning. These are almost ready to start using!
