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…
