Refresh Your Space with a DIY Wood Plant Stand

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?
