Lately I have been obsessed with fresh herb cooking. Last week I bought four herb plants at the grocery store and put them on the kitchen window sill. The pots the herbs come in are not my style, or probably anyone’s for that matter, and had to go. I read online that when the herb is spent you just throw it away and buy a new one. What?? Commit herbicide – so not going to happen! So I headed to the Home Depot for terracotta pots to make the herbs look pretty. I love the vintage terracotta look, like the pot has been around forever.
To get that vintage look, I dry brushed with white craft paint and then french gray chalk paint. Old white plastic plant markers from the basement got a coat of chalkboard paint. The saucers are from the thrift store. The whole thing took about two hours, mostly for drying time. Not too shabby and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the re-potted herbs will last a good while.
The pots look like french vintage to me. What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by my little blog today! I hope this gave you a few ideas for your own herb garden!
