Bucket Garden Wall

While I'm out loving on my brand new baby boy, I hope you enjoy this series: my favorite DIY rerun posts! Learn more about the series here.

A few weekends ago, I saw a little contraption at Ikea that I just love.

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 ceremony with hydrangea stems. Aw, sweet memories. My little love buckets.

This weekend, David and I finally put those love buckets back to good use.

With the help of a few picture hangers, my love buckets (who has love buckets? seriously?) and the garden section at Home Depot, I've got 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.

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!

David and I are loving this fun little update! Before the garden wall, I had some colorful plates hung 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 buckets work 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 there you have it, my little DIY bucket garden wall!

  6. Love this idea! Growing your own organic herbs is such a great idea! There is another interesting way to do a vertical garden idea (www.eieihome.com/blog/do-it-yourself-vertical-gardens.html) that is similar to your idea. Hope its helpful!
