8/26/15Boho Kitchen Bonanza Part 3: DIY tiered copper planter

Tiered fruit basket turned kitchen garden | The Jungalow

We’ve been talking a lot about the BIG decisions in kitchen design–like the layout and the countertops, but one of the most fun processes for me was choosing the small details and the accessories. Our first big aesthetic decision was the floor and backsplash tile (read about that here). Once that choice was made, it informed the colors of everything else: white, different shades of green, wood and copper accents.

Once we decided to go copper, it’s almost like I couldn’t see anything else. Every home decor store I went into, every website I perused, I was all about copper. In one of those heated copper crazy moments, I found this tiered fruit basket at World Market and came up with a little repurpose/DIY idea for it–because if there is one thing I like more than copper, it’s copper with a plant on it, in it, next to it, or in its general vicinity.

The project is beyond simple. I didn’t even add the rope. The baskets just came like this. But even thought it’s super straight forward I’ll share a step-by-step in case anyone wants to replicate the idea, and needs a little jump start.

What you’ll Need: 
Hanging Baskets
Sheets of moss
(3) Plants or herbs (one small, one medium, one large).
Potting soil
Screw Hook

What you do:
1. Get the baskets and a sheet of moss.
2. Find a good spot for your baskets, be mindful of how much sunlight the plants will need to receive and hang accordingly.
3. Screw your hook into the ceiling and hang hang your basket.
4. Cut pieces of the moss and fit them into each tier of the basket.
5. Plant your plants. Top off with extra potting soil.  (I love the idea of planting herbs in here for a kitchen herb garden.)
6. Spray the plants bewteen waterings and to water the basket, simply water in the shower. 

I love the look of my new hanging kitchen garden and it’s the perfect compliment to all that green and copper we’ve got going on on the other side of the kitchen:

    I hope I’m not asking a repeat question, but where did you find those beautiful shelves? I love the wood—awesome texture and gorgeous coloring! They look amazing with the backsplash and copper hardware.

      Hi Kate! Not a repeat question, I haven’t talked about the shelves yet! I got them custom made at Treeline Woodworks here in Frogtown (los ANgeles) they also custom made the brackets and finished them in copper for us! They were great to work with and I highly recommend them!

    Hi Justyna,

    I really love your kitchen, especially those green tiles on your wall. I’m hoping to get a similar look in my kitchen and was wondering where you got those? We actually have two exposed brick walls in our kitchen so I’m considering just painting the backsplash area of those in a glossy green.

    PS. I left a glowing review for your ‘The New Bohemians’ book on Amazon. I devoured every word and image from cover to cover – really enjoyed it.
