What a great look! And I love reusing materials to come up with something so awesome looking. I'm trying to think of where this would look good in my house. Smiley

Those look very nice.  You would have no idea they were made from water bottles!

Just thought I would update, the herbs are doing great in these containers. I think the basil may need something bigger at this point, but overall everything is great
