I really wanted to have some fresh herbs in the kitchen, but the windowsill was too narrow.
From our recent move to NJ, I had some leftover wire baskets from Ikea ~$2.99~ that I used in the condo in FL to hold all my spices on the kitchen wall above the counter.

The Bygel baskets are paired with the above rail ~Bygel Rail for $2.99 or $3.99, depending on the size~.
I couldn't install those on the wall in this rental house, so I had to re-purpose them somehow ~or throw them in the attic, but I really don't like to waste organizing tools!~
I decided to make a windowsill garden with the help of these baskets.
Unfortunately the Bygel rails did not fit in the window opening ~I own both sizes, but one is too short and the other too long!!~ Bummer!!
But I did find something to solve my problem: a thin curtain rod ~which was actually already fixed to the window and fit the Ikea baskets perfectly!~
I hammered in the rod at the height that I wanted and put everything in place.
Tada! Easy Breezy Beautiful ~No, it's not Covergirl! haha!!~
For now, I have Basil, Rosemary and flowers, and I still have to find some fancier pots.
I also added some hanging candles ~souvenir from friends' wedding~ to make it extra pretty.
Here is a Before/After comparison!
So, what do you think about this quick and easy "windowsill garden"?!
Feel free to share! I am curious to see what you think or if any of you guys have a little "garden" of your own!
