Welcome to DO IT No. 4!
I really surprised myself with this round because it has to do with something that is not exactly my biggest strength: Gardening. Plants. Green things that you're supposed to water, love and talk to.
(In case you're a new reader: DO IT is a weekly column on MINA MOKA where I try to transform an idea from my ideas board on pinterest into reality. The motto is: stop pinning stuff, start doing stuff.)
This week: Stop pinning, start planting!
The pin it all started with today was this one. I liked the idea to have an herb garden in an unusual planter. I don't have a wooden box or drawer like the one in the pin, but I remembered that I had a vintage metal tub that we got as a baby bathtub for our first son. We thought is was super retro and very cool. It turned out to be super heavy and very impractical. But very retro, indeed!
After a couple of months I decided to buy an ugly plastic baby bathtub and use the metal one as a planter. End of story. I bought an ugly plastic baby bathtub and never planted anything anywhere.
Voilà: My mini herb garden. Parsley, Thyme, Rosemary, Basil.
And I can even see it directly from my desk!
I'll be back on monday with a new Instaweekend collage and then take a little break from blogging for the rest of the week.
Have a good weekend!
