Indoor Herb Garden

Found 3 old farm scoops at an antique store that were covered in red paint. Figured I'd find some way to use them! Had numerous old pallet wood around the garage waiting for a project. Decided to sand down the 3 red scoops a little bit, allowing the old red paint to show in some places.

Painted a 36" piece of pallet first with black paint, let dry. White watered down paint went next and after it dried, sanded it down to look weathered.

Screwed the 3 red (now silver) scoops to the pallet board and screwed pallet board to kitchen wall. Added Basil, oregano and parsley to the scoops. My new kitchen herb garden!

Sanded, painted black, let dry. Watered down white paint over black, let dry. Sanded down board to allow natural, black and white to come through to give it that distressed look.
