RÅSKOG Kitchen cart into a rolling herb garden


Materials: RÅSKOG

Description: A few weeks back I saw this mint kitchen cart in IKEA, and just had to have it even though I had no clue what I’d do with it- envision my husband rolling his eyes in IKEA and thinking “great, more c**p in the house”. He’ll forgive me I know ;) Anyway, last week a couple of my herb pots landed on it and I figured, wouldn’t it be fun to make this cart a little rolling garden?

It’s probably the easiest hack you’ll ever do. All it involves is a bit of gold contact paper and some washi tape to decorate – and you loads the cart with your favorite cooking and herb plants. I included a bunch of cooking herbs and plants (sage, basil, rosemary, thyme, parsley, cilantro, etc), as well as a few flowers that you can cook with (lavender, violets).

For this little garden I also made some fun little plant markers, which you can see on my blog here.

    It’s cute, but the herbs on the lower shelves aren’t going to get nearly enough light.

    You could hack this and add those undercounter LED lights to the bottom of the shelves, though. Those would probably produce enough light for the herbs, when supplemented with sunlight…

  2. This is cute — but isn’t watering a little bit difficult?

    So long,

    • Actually not at all! You do need a water can with a long spout, but other than there is nothing to it really. Also, because the garden is on wheels, you can easily turn it around while watering so you can better access all of the plants. I’ve had no problems with it!
