Today’s project is a simple DIY, but a milestone for me! It’s the first time I’ve actually used a power tool 🙂 A drill. One of my goals this year with my blogging projects was to stretch myself a bit and learn some new techniques and tools.
I have been eyeing hairpin legs and also elevated plant stands. This mid- century look combined with the rustic wood makes a very unique and interesting piece. So I decided to combine the two and make my own;
DIY Plant Stand
Truly this was a simple project. First, I gathered my materials; a wooden round, 6 inch hairpin legs, and my drill and screws.
Using a marker, I marked the holes on the underside of my piece of wood.
After, marking the holes, I used my drill to pre-drill holes.
Next, using the screws which came with the legs, I screwed them in.
See, I told you it was simple!
My plan was to use my DIY plant stand in my foyer. I have a small entryway area, so I set it beside my antique chest . It fit perfectly into the nook and with a plant, adds a bit of greenery to the space.
You could choose to stain your wood, but I liked the way it looked naturally, so I left it.
What do you think?
I’m thinking of doing something fun with the plant pot, but not sure yet. Any ideas?
