Something I will miss about living with my roommate Danielle is that she is a crazy plant hoarder. And I mean that in the best sense :) She loves plants so much that we have lots of little succulents, terrariums, and leafy greens scattered throughout our house. We have at least 10 potted plants and succulents scattered down the side of our front step. And on the side and back of the house she has even more plants and plants and plants. One of my goals for my new apartment with my boyfriend is to bring in plants into our space, because I love seeing all of that green, but without letting it get too cluttered. Danielle does a good job of not letting the plant population of our house look like a green infestation so I'll just need to take notes from her.
One thing that Max and I would love to have is a little indoor herb garden. I have spotted lots of cool DIY herb gardens on Pinterest so I thought I'd share some of my favorite inspirations:
1. Table Top Herb Planter Box by Migonis Home: make a custom planter box to set on top of a table as a centerpiece out of palette scrap wood! I think this is a great way to create an organic table decoration that will last a long time and is useful!
2. Side table Planter Box from Terrain: I think this could be easily duplicated on a budget. If you have a table that has a glass top and a bar or shelf underneath, just lay a few planks of wood on the bar or shelf and put all of your favorite succulents, herbs, and plants in pots underneath!
3. Jar Wall Hanging by Camille Styles: use pipe clamps to attach mason jars to a plank of wood. Fill the mason jars with your favorite herbs and hang on the wall and you are good to go!
4. Indoor Hanging Pots by Compagnie: I think this actually wouldn't be too difficult to make on your own. Just constructs some little racks with wood to hold your pots, attach strong wire through each of the wooden racks and then hang from the ceiling with metal hooks!
5. Specialty Herb Pots by Saga Form: There are tons of specialty indoor herb growing pots and planters around these days. So if you're not in the mood to DIY an herb planter, these are for you! I spotted a fun one on Fab today which I think is still available.
Let me know if any of you end up making your own herb planters, I want to see how they turn out! If I end up making one, I'll for sure do a little DIY on the blog :) Happy planting!
