Trash to Treasure: Chicken Nesting Box to Herb Home

My herbs have a new home!  This old chicken nesting box became home for my herbs this year.  I wanted to plant more herbs this time around and have them protected from the wind and cold that is still here in Tennessee in April.

Here’s the nesting box before I started work on it:

Each section has a removable bottom that needed to have holes drilled in the bottom so water would flow through once each section was planted with herbs.  Here’s those bottoms removed:

Next, the entire structure (3’ X 5’) needed to be sanded then painted.  I only painted the outside as I didn’t want paint on the inside boxes where herbs would be planted.

Here it is newly painted ready to be moved outside.  There are two brackets on the top corners that are very useful in attaching to the outside structure to keep it steady.

My next write up will be about the herbs that are planted in this unique planter.  We may not have chickens on the property, but this chicken nesting box gives the backyard nice country ambiance!

Update!! I took some updated pictures of the herbs. They love the area they are in – sun in the morning and early afternoon and when the heat comes, they are in shade.
