Guest Project — Make a Kitchen Garden Wall!!

8 Apr

 Hi friends!! I’m Michelle, from Ten June. I’ve got a big smile on my face today. Why? Well, first of all, I’m really excited to be stopping by over here at Tatertots and Jello today- Jen is one of the most creative gals around and she features so many amazing projects! Whenever I click over to Tatertots and Jello, I leave with at least four new bookmarks in my “inspiration” folder!


I’m also all smiles because SPRING is finally here! Hell-ooo sunshine, flowers and Easter candy! In honor of spring’s arrival, I thought I’d share a fun project that I just did in my breakfast room– a garden wall! It’s fresh, it’s fun and it’s eas-y! A few weekends ago, I saw a little contraption at Ikea that I just fell in love with.


 It’s a metal tin that hangs on the wall and can be used to hold anything- utensils, plants, pens, etc. I absolutely loved the concept as soon as I saw the tins and I knew I had to recreate this somewhere at my house. Luckily, my mom recently gave me a bag of our wedding decor that she found in her attic. Part of that loot included some metal tins that we had used to line the chairs at our wedding ceremony with hydrangea stems. Aw, sweet memories. My little love buckets!!

 I decided to put my little love buckets back to good use.

With the help of a few picture hangers, my love buckets and the garden section at Home Depot, I’ve got myself a garden wall! I am sure that there are allll kinds of green thumb no-no’s about putting plants on a wall like this, but I don’t care. I’m a rebel like that! Each of these are house plants that cooperate well with the indoors. Also, my breakfast room gets a lot of light… hopefully they will survive!

 I am absolutely loving the fun, fresh color it brings into my kitchen and breakfast area. It’s the perfect way to bring spring indoors, but without the pollen which is currently all over my backyard! Ah, spring in the south.

 In addition to a few basic house plants, I threw in a few of our favorite fresh herbs. That basil smells DE-LISH! Can’t wait to fix up my favorite- caprese salad- with some!

 Before the garden wall, I had some colorful plates hanging on the wall, but they never really looked like they fit just right. I’m not sure if it was the size or the plates themselves, but the love bucket garden wall works so much better! It really makes such a difference in the room. 

While I was in the gardening section, I also found this adorable little succulent. I couldn’t resist! He’s sitting in a tiny little watering can on my kitchen windowsill 🙂

So that’s my breakfast room/kitchen garden wall! And for the record, it’s been a couple of weeks and my plants are still alive! Just call me Green Thumbs Michelle : )

 Thanks so much for having me, Jen!
