Green Potting Station

My love for greenery and especially succulents is no secret. Neither is my brown thumb. It happens though, that I am managing to be successful in the succulent department and they just keep on growing. Which is awesome and so since I have never really had a designated spot to pot my plants, I felt like setting up a green potting station. So far, when ever I wanted to re-plant some of my succulents it’s just been messy with dirt all over the place. Plus, we all enjoy herbs so much and to keep those and the succulents unreachable for our bunnies, a potting station felt only right.

What you need:

Potting Station

[I bought this potting station, except mine has only one shelf on the bottom. But other than that it is the same one I got. It is perfect, the right size and just what I wanted]

Montana Spray Paint MTN 94 Green Breeze [this one looks similar]

Crates & Baskets

Terracotta Pots

Succulents & Herbs

What to do:

Assemble your potting station, if it has a finish on it, lightly sand the surface. Mine did not need sanding.
Start spray painting the wood following the safety and application instructions on the can.
Repeat with 2-3 coats for a consistent color. I used two cans of paint to get this color.
Let dry. Then start setting up your pots, plants and supplies.

I found this cute wicker shelf at a flea market and spray painted it as well using this chalked spray paint from Rust-Oleum. It’s perfect above the potting station and my little succulents just look so cute on it, right?

The decoupaged herb sign I made last week fits right in there too!

    Katrin your green potting station looks so pretty. It really stands out against all the white and neutral and compliments the green plants perfectly. Oh and the shelf above is the perfect touch. Now come on over and help me revive my dead plants.

    I would be sooooo happy too, if I had a potting station like that Katrin. How lovely. You are going to have so much fun repotting your succulents and they’re going to make so many little babies, you’ll be sharing the plant love with all your neighbors too. Love the happy green color you used. It’s so striking against the wall.
