The modern mid century plant stands are still making a buzz on Pinterest!
I planned to make my very own plant stand over three months ago and I finally gathered up some energy to get working on this very easy DIY project a few days ago.

I will not write about how to make this plant stand because doing that would be a bore. There so many blog posts and video tutorials out there for this plant stand. No need to reinvent the wheel. Just google it and you will not be disappointed.
However, what I will dwell on in this post is the few tips and things I learned from undertaking this project.
1| Buy your planter before you make your plant stand. You need to know the dimensions of your planter before you make your plant stand. Make measurements at home before you head out to buy the wood and materials you will need.
3| It’s a very easy project for woodworking beginners. This plant stand is fairly easy to make, and does not require a lot of time.
4| Don’t eyeball your measurements. Take your time to measure your planter pot and get the right dimensions, or you will have to make adjustments, start over, or end up with a wobbly plant stand.
5| Have the wood pieces cut at the hardware store, if possible. This step will save you some time in the process.
6| The cost of making the plant stand depends on the tools and materials you already have on hand. I spent less than $20 to make each plant stand because I already had a drill, wood glue, chisel and miter box and saw on hand.
I recently purchased a kreg Pocket hole kit and will be making this plant stand again soon, and I’ll be sure to capture the process for you to see. I’m hoping it’ll be easier than the first two times.
7| Relax. Undertaking woodworking is no joke. Relax and learn through the process.
