MID CENTURY PLANT STAND DIY
I've been on a little bit of a plant buying kick recently and I was needing some planters that would be worthy of my new babies.
I feel like these wooden mid century plant stands are a nice way to do just that!
You can see these types of plant stands being sold by West Elm, but honestly this thrift store loving girl is not going to be paying those kind of prices for something so easy to DIY.
- 1"x2"-6' select pine board - 2 - 3/4"x36" square dowels - flat topped wood plugs - wood glue - screws - Screwdriver - drill or drill press - wood chisel - saw - sandpaper - wood stain - paint brush and clean rag for staining - large round planter
HOW TO MAKE A MID CENTURY PLANT STAND
To make the "ledge" the planter will set on, measure the diameter of your pot and add one inch. This is the length you will be cutting your 1 x 2 x 6 ft board into. You need two of these pieces cut.
Using a ruler, measure to the middle of these boards and draw out a ¾" square on each board.
I used a jig saw to make a few straight cuts into the little square I wanted removed and then used a chisel to knock out the rest.
