I am excited to announce that I am trying to add a little more green in my life, so I’m sharing some upcycled herb garden inspiration with you all.
For those of you who know me, know I do not have a green thumb what-so-ever. I am trying to make this something I can get better at.
I am attempting to create a cool herb garden just outside my apartment front door. Currently, I have my single speed bike and a little round table holding some plants (that are just failing because I either over water or forget to water.)
Now you are getting the real reason why I am calling this a “Challenge.”
This month’s #30dayflip is really going to help me focus on honing this “green thumb skill” and being able to maintain this herb garden will be my actual challenge.
But first, I want to tell you why I wanted to create this little herb garden. Have you seen the prices for herbs at the grocery store recently? A little too much if you ask me… when anyone can really grow these herbs inside or outside their home. I have seen some impressive hanging gardens and other fun upcycled planters on Pinterest that make me believe I can totally do this!
My goal is to not spend a single dime on this challenge! You heard me. I don’t want to spend anything on it. This is my feeble attempt at de-hoarding some of my art/paint supplies and repurposing them in a creative and useful way. Enter: some serious upcycled herb garden inspiration:
Here is my inspiration board for this challenge. I am hoping I can do something unique and pretty to make this little entryway I have look more welcoming. Even as a renter, I am making this work so I can take it down when I move with out damaging the property.

I am starting my herbs from seedlings so I will be taking you through the process of germinating the seeds and allowing them time to sprout. Once they sprout I will take you through the planting and DIY process of making the garden containers. I hope you all enjoy this. I am really looking forward to it.
