One thing I miss this summer is my herb garden. Since we have a little patio space here at our summer rental, I wanted to make sure I had some fresh herbs on hand.
This is a quick and easy painted pot project. In the amount of time it takes you to blink, you can get this done!
Pros about living here are the great stores! I am minutes from Ikea, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods…stores that are a bit of drive back home…like a 3 hour drive!
On my last Ikea haul, I grabbed 3 FRIDFULL woven 4-1/2 inch pots. They are the perfect size for little herbs and succulents.
To make them more personalized, I opted to give them a paint-dipped look with black and white paint leftover from my DIY Painted Patio Chairs.
I just used my leftover painter’s tape to make a clean line as I measured 3 inches up on each one.
This is a really quick way to get that paint-dipped look.
At Trader Joe’s, I picked up a variety of herbs and a succulent. I just love these little woven planters.
Now, I have a little herb garden to snip for cooking. I am hoping our little patio will get enough sun to keep these little guys happy.
As you see our garden gnome “Cheese McBean” traveled out east with us. I am going to add some more herbs when I get to the store again, but this is a good little start.
I moved the succulent indoors for now to make more room for herbs. I like him by our little brass heron that the boys named Rocky.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend. I have a project to finish up, but we are going hiking all day Saturday. We found a great spot that is close-by that has some beautiful trails and waterfalls. The boys can’t wait!
