DIY : colorful plant pots

To continue the serie of articles on how to enhance your interior in a low budget, here is the last creation I made : colorful pots for little plants in the kitchen.

Cost of this project : 5 $NZ for the pots, 6 $NZ for the paint and 12 $NZ for the flowers/earth.  TOTAL : 23 $NZ

The plants : gardening shop or supermarket ?

The initial idea was to plant aromatic plants like parsley or basil, to use them while cooking. We can find some cheap ones in the supermarket. I tested it but I don’t recommend it, or at least not during winter. Those plants grow under solar lamps before being displayed in the supermarket. Once brought back home, they need lots of sun and heat, which is tricky to get during winter. My poor aromatic plants didn’t survived. I learnt from that, and went to buy normal flowers in a gardening shop after asking for good advices from the seller. They still have some cheap plants, those ones were at 1,87$NZ/plant.
So far, my new flowers look happy !  Gardening Shop wins !

The pots : gets them at the recycling center !

Little pots aromatic plants

In Wanaka (New Zealand) at the moment, we have access to this fantastic place called “Recycling center” where you can find already used items. It demands a bit of search and imagination, but that’s where I found 3 little pots in a brown earthy color. Different shapes and colors, but that’s for the charming aspect !

The picture here has been taken when the aromatic plants were still surviving !!

 

The paint : get test pots

Instead of buying expensive acrylic paint available only in the primary colors, I got 2 little Resene “test pots” that are made for testing paint color on walls. Their volume of paint is just perfect for the size of the pots (I even have left overs), and you have the freedom to choose between a laaarge range of colors.

Here are the colors I chose : Grey/light blue “Longitude and Guardsman Red which will go along with the original brown pot.
The reason why I chose those colors is to go well with the rest of the apartment which has grey carpet, brown leather couch, light grey/earthy walls and wooden table. My goal was to add a punchy touch of vitamin in the kitchen that goes along with natural shade like wood colors. The red turns out to be brighter than I thought but I am quite happy with the result.
