Add a Vertical Garden to Your Kitchen

DIY Hanging Kitchen Planters

Every time I am at Home Depot (which is pretty much all of the time!), I always find myself lingering around the houseplants.  They have so many different succulents in this area. We all know this is really the only kind of houseplant I am allowed to have since it takes a little more effort to kill these type of plants.  I was having some serious plant envy the last time I was Home Depot so I decided to pick-up a few.  Whoops!

I wanted to somehow incorporate more plants into my kitchen, but I don’t have a ton of counter space.  I didn’t want to turn my window ledge into a tropical forest, so I decided to create a vertical garden up the side of my cabinets!

All I did to create this magical look was paint some plastic pots and use Command Hooks to hang them.  It was so easy!  They best part about Command Hooks is if you decided you don’t want your vertical garden anymore, you can just remove the strips – no harm, no foul!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 Plastic Pots
  • Spray Paint
  • Awl
  • Small Clear Command Hooks
  • Potting Soil
  • Succulents

Step 1:  Grab your awl and apply pressure to your plastic pot about an inch down from the top.  You will see the awl start to puncture the pot.  Keep pushing your awl until it is all the way through your pot.

Step 2: Spray the outside of your pot with your spray paint.  I ended up doing 2 coats of paint.  You will also want to spray paint the inside of your pot a couple of inches down.

Step 3:  After your paint has dried, toss in some potting soil and your succulent.  Once your plants have been potted, it’s time to add your hooks.  Figure out the spacing you want for your planters.  Once you do, add your hooks and then push the hook through the hole in your planter, and hang your other planters.  You now have a garden that you can see, but won’t take up any of your counter space!

So, after I saw the result of my spray painted job, I was a little unsure of the color in my kitchen.  So, I ended up painting my pots with a lighter peach color.  I really like how the lighter color turned out. :)
