Mini Herb Garden With Chalk Paint.


Rosemary, Spearmint, Oregano & Basil are my favorite herbs to cook with!
I needed to bring these spices together in my kitchen so I created a little herb garden on my counter from an old planter. You can use any wooden size container for this project.


Step 1: Sand the planter lightly. Spray paint one coat outdoors. Let dry for 20 minutes and paint a second coat. Its important that you use 2 or three coats so the chalk paint is thick.

Step 2: After its dries add the herb plants and potting soil. Take the planter inside and start writing with chalk the herb names you chosen carefully on the planter. Whats great about using chalk is  you can change out the herbs and add new names on the planter.

Once the min garden is finished. Keep the herb plants in a sunny area and water daily. It has been wonderful to have the herbs close to where I cook.
