Upcycle Antique Milk Carton for for Your Herb Garden


Finding hidden antique gems is part of the fun and discovery of breathing life back and finding new purpose in the unused and forgotten. Here's how I took an antique milk carton crate and transformed it into an herb garden.
I found this metal milk carton crate in an antique store for $24.00. And the table it is sitting on. I noticed the rings were just the right size for small plant pots.
I sanded away rust spots and blemishes. I chose a bright coral gloss spray paint and primer to cover.
Let the paint dry over night, place your herb or flowers in the rings.
What I like is that it's easy to transport inside if the weather gets cold.
