Hanging Kitchen Planters

This was the first project that involved any drilling into the walls of our new house so it was a bit exciting! We painted the hangers white, originally they were a shiny green like the planters themselves but stood out far too much. They’re pretty heavy duty and designed for outside use but they look wonderful in the kitchen all shabby white now! Plants always make a big difference to any inside space but I didn’t realise how much!

I love them!

In the first pic we have some salsa chilli’s… they look too yummy. We also hung some blue and yellow flowers and made a herb basket with coriander, parsley and thyme, some of the herbs that get used a lot.

  1. Are these indoors? What about watering them?

    1. Yes they're indoors. They're all planted by large windows that get a lot of sunlight and I bought a spray bottle to water them with each day. As they're in the kitchen they won't be forgotten and I'll be able to keep a close watch on their health to make sure they're getting enough water and sun and not too much of each! :) Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my post. Hope you'll come by again and keep in touch!

    1. Yes! It's hard to keep myself from those chili's especially! They look so good. I just hope they continue to grow. :) I'll be keeping a close eye on them that's for sure.

  9. Great idea to keep the herbs nearby. If the watering system doesn't work, i.e. leaks, you could lay some plastic under the dirt too. Thank you for sharing it at to What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!

    Hugs,
    Deborah

    1. Thanks Deborah! The baskets are made from coconut fibers and are very waxy! So far no leaks! I will definitely be doing that in the future if it starts going through!
