A rustic pot stand created by joining two ladders with hinges and using timber pieces on dowels to hold pots.
I followed these instructions on How To Make A Decorative Vintage Ladder and adapted them to make this display pot stand.
The frame is constructed using recycled pallet timber. I then used 32mm Oak dowel, barn hinges, Pine pieces and Dulux Design Chalk Effect Paint to achieve the finished product.
The Bunnings team has put together a step-by-step guide for making a shoe storage rack that has a similar design to this ladder pot stand. Follow this guide: How To Make a D.I.Y. Shoe Storage Rack.
I loved this. Well done @MitchellM - I reckon I'm going to make one of these.
I think I will use a hinge at the top and put a locking mechanism of some type to keep it stable - but it will allow me to move it around easier.
I'll send a picture once I've done it.
Thanks for your kind comment, @robchin.
Great thinking about the hinge; that's what I used on the top. It's a strap hinge style, similar to this Pinnacle 75mm Zinc Plated Strap Hinge.
It's worth considering a locking mechanism as well. I just used cotton cordage as it was a simple approach, or I believe you could use something like this Prestige 131mm Lid Support Stay.
Looking forward to seeing your version.
This looks great. ✨✨✨✨

This is just what I need to show off my gorgeous collection of Bunnings plants! Thank you MitchellMc - what an inspiration! 👏👍🏻
Thanks so much, @Tyro!
It's quite an easy project, even for someone starting out in woodworking. I encourage you to give it a try and reach out if you need assistance.
