Mini Planters For The Kitchen Window Sill...



Oh how I wish I had sills in my kitchen with depth.
But no - they are a mere 8cm wide.  
That is not even three and a half inches!
I see all these wonderful ideas for decorating the kitchen sills...
But I have never found anything, or any idea that will fit.
Of course a skinny vase, jug or bottle will. 
But they have all visited the been there done that basket!
Today I was at 'The Warehouse' store,
 where I found these cute little glass ceramic pots.
Nice shape and the perfect size for the window sill!
$5 each, marked down to $4, then $1.14.
Took them up to the counter and they were only 23 cents each!!!
What???   A whole 69 cents for the three cute pots!
Now that would have to be the bargain of the century don't you think?
So off I went to Mitre 10.
And purchased three mini pot plants.
The little plant pots were a perfect fit for the cute pots.
Total cost for the Kitchen Window Sill makeover - $9.60!
And I LOVE the look.
Crisp clean, and green!

  1. Now just imagine if those had been at Pottery Barn or somewhere else. They would have been $20 each. What a great find and I love the way you planted them for the window sill. Perfect!

  3. What a lovely yet practical project.
    Stacey is right- the retail price on these would have been high.
    $9.60 is more like it!

    Thank you for joining TOHOT- I always love seeing your projects!
