A Farmhouse-Style Herb Garden in the Dining Room...

It may still be awhile until we plant herbs in the garden outside, but it's never too early to enjoy them indoors. 

They add some life, greenery, and freshness to the house... and smell so good!

Plus, it's good gardening warm-up.

Today we had a short break in the rain, so I headed out to do a little yard work for the first time in forever. I uncovered a baseball, soccer ball, and five footballs beneath the the fallen foliage that has collected over the winter. It was like an Easter hunt for me (sans chocolate), and Christmas for our boys. :)

The Farm to Table sign was a gift from my sister. You can find your own sign here.

I love our grain sack table runner that my mom made us by opening up a grain sack, and finishing the edges. You could also use an extra-long grain sack as-is for a shorter style runner that doesn't hang off the table for an easy, no-sew option. 

The best priced grain sacks I've found are here.

The herbs I chose for our dining room are rosemary, lavender, sage and thyme...

My husband and I made the silverware herb markers out of vintage spoons I found at a thrift store. 
(Might be the smallest repurposing project ever. :)

If you don't have the time or tools to make your own silverware garden markers, you can find them here.

And remember to keep your eye out for galvanized buckets and tubs... They are so versatile, and can be used indoors or outdoors.

And now, I need your opinion. I'm considering sanding down the dining room chairs OR the table top to expose more wood in the dining room, and warm it up just a bit. What do you think?

Thanks friends!

  1. Yes I agree some warm wood tones would look great.😊

  2. Yes, definitely some warm wood tones would look terrific! When you do ALL white in a room, it tends to make it look like a hospital. I've seen it called "institutional" or "sterile." The herbs and spoon markers are wonderful! They add a nice fresh, but subtle pop of color. Thank you for sharing. :)

    1. I know what you mean. And, the room looks extra white because not much of the wood floor is showing. But I am in the mood to add some more woods. I appreciate your feedback and hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I think doing the top of the table would look pretty awesome. Love your herbs and spoon markers so cute. Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Kris! Yes, I've already started sanding. :) Hope you are doing well!

  4. So pretty, so peaceful, so much style! Question - do you have holes drilled in your pots or do you just plant without the holes?

    1. Thanks so much Susan! For these buckets, I didn't want to drill holes. So, I am careful not to over-water. They would probably last longer with better drainage, but I am happy with the fact that they last much longer than cut flowers, and I get to keep the buckets in-tact for other uses.
