These plant stands are affordable, doable and super pretty! The pots themselves come in a huge variety of sizes via Amazon (the 12 inch ones we used are here). I’ve used the smaller sizes a lot throughout our home, like on our kitchen shelves!
Anyway! I hope you guys enjoy this project. Here are the DIY instructions!
-2 pieces of wood 1′ x 2″ x 3/4″
-4 1″ square pieces of wood (cut to whatever length you want your plant stand to be)
–countersink drill bit
–gold leaf paint
Step One: Start by determining what size you want your stand to be (this will be based on what planter you’re going to be using with it). Measure the bottom width of your planter and add an extra 2″ to that measurement. Cut your 2″ x 3/4″ pieces of wood to that length. Next, mark a 3/4″ notch in the middle of both pieces of wood with a pencil and use your jigsaw to cut out the pieces. These two pieces will connect later and create the base of your plant stand.
Step Two: Drill two holes below that line in each leg with a countersink drill bit. Next, take your legs one at a time and hold them up to your 2″ x 3/4″ pieces of wood but make sure the 2 inches you marked with a pencil are hanging over the top. Then screw your legs to your base pieces with one leg on opposite sides of each piece of wood.
Step Three: Next, line up the notches you created earlier to connect your two base pieces together. Attach the pieces by drilling a hole through the bottom of them and use a screw to secure.
Step Four: Lastly, give your planter a light sand with a sanding sponge, and then it’s ready to paint!
