DIY Kitchen Herb Planter

Growing fresh herbs indoors can be a tricky task, but an outdoor garden bed requires yard space that not all of us have. So what's an herb lover to do? We love growing herbs at home – all year long! We created this DIY Herb Planter for our friends using a simple wood planter box and some galvanized buckets to create this modern farmhouse style planter box.

By painting it with some black chalkboard paint, you can easily write the names of the herbs you have planted for a personalized touch. Some of our favorite herbs to have on hand are thyme, basil, mint and rosemary. The thyme and rosemary are so great to use for grilling and soups and basil is always a good idea! And of course, mint is a must for some of our go-to cocktails.

This easy-to-build box is perfect for a kitchen window sill or countertop. If you plan on keeping your planter box outdoors, use a species of wood that is weather-resistant and line the box with a plastic wrapping.

Materials and Tools

  • 5 pieces of wood (we used maple): 2 measuring 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" (end pieces); 2 measuring 20" x 5-1/2" (sides); and 1 measuring 18-1/2" x 5-1/2"(bottom)
  • wood glue
  • finishing nails
  • metal clips
  • hammer
  • two clamps
  • neon spray paint
  • extra finishing nails for reinforcement
  • waterproofing tape, such as Tyvek
