In recent years, Kmart has hit the big time, and with it creative folks have started to make the bargain retailer’s items their own — we’re talking about Kmart hacks!

A hanging herb wall that makes use of Kmart’s adjustable metal wall sheet, white screw hooks, and mini hanging strap planters. Altogether, it’s a massive success!
