CD rack gives birth to Basil

Materials: BOALT CD racks, wood primer, planting cloth, top soil, herbs

Description: I’ve finally joined the digital revolution and so no longer need my CD racks. Not wanting to throw them away, I searched for other possible uses, and then it hit me – herb boxes. This is a very simple hack, or rather recycling of a couple of BOALT CD racks.

Step 1: Weather treat the wood.

Step 2: Line the racks with planting cloth (or something else that will keep dirt in, but let water pass through).

Step 3: Fill with top soil.

Step 4: Plant.

It’s as easy as that. Something tells me I might be doing this with my DVD racks in a couple of years…
