Let me start of by saying 90% of this project is recycled materials. Tin cans, barn wood,  and to cook with everyday. YEY!!!  Oh and the best part is.. it takes under an hour to make.

I wanted to give my pots a marbleized effect. I used a tub of water and for this technique.

I used to my third pot. I talk more in depth about this step on my blog and to finish it off I secured my tin cans to my recycled wood.

    Is this one of your bathroom walls over the tub? How did you attach the barn wood to that wall?

      This is right next to my lovely fireplace. :D I do however have it in my kitchen at the time. To hang it I used a strong rope that I stapled and attached it to a screw in the wall. :D

    Did I miss something about how they drain, so the herbs don't get root rot? I love the look of these, but wonder - doesn't the inside of the can rust? Could you put the paint effect on the inside to protect it?
    I'd try other herbs than basil (which I personally LOVE), because when I've tried basil in pots, they get root bound very fast and the plants die.

      Along with what some people have added you can use a small airline tube like the ones you use in fish aquariums place a small hole at he side of the can and run the the next can and so on till you reach the last one then if you wanted directly in the cans the water will run from one to the next and then you will only have one can with no hole that will catch the water. This is a good way to make a mini version of drip irrigation.

    I love it. Going to make for all the females as well as myself for Christmas. I made wall hangings and a head and foot board for my bed from a fence that I replaced and was wondering what to make with the rest of the fence. Problem solved. Thank you for the idea.
