This project is exactly what it sounds like, and requires no tools! Yay! All you need is:
A tension rod
IKEA FINTORP cutlery caddies (which have drainage plates already
A package of hooks for that system
Then you put them all together in your window, see? So easy. This was extra easy for me because I have a lot of tension rods lying around from when I had curtains instead of roller shades. They were a little too expensive to throw out, so I had them all in the shed just waiting patiently! Another great use for one ended up putting it under the sink to hang spray bottles.
As an added bonus my plants are mostly out of reach from the cats. Since these herbs (cilantro, sage, and orange thyme) are all technically pet-safe and non-toxic it isn’t the most important thing, except for of course I would like there to be a few herbs left for me! I previously had a greenhouse in this window to protect them as babies, which is going bye-bye so I can turn this shelf into a 2-seater bar! Until next time…
