Plant stands do more than displaying your favourite plants – they help organise your plant collection, maximise limited space and provide better airflow.

 

They're also a great way to spruce up your green corner, adding style and character.

 

Get inspired from these creative indoor and outdoor plant stands shared by our clever Bunnings Workshop community members and let us know if you need a hand in building your own.

2. DIY plant stand by @craftyhopper 

 

An innovative technique that led to a fine finish. Leanne ingeniously used leftover Acacia offcuts to build this beautiful plant stand, sanding back the panels for a lighter effect.

Some great ideas there. One of my favourites (and sorry, I don't have a picture) is one I made from a couple of old wooden ladders I rescued from hard rubbish. Plants and wood, my two favourite things.
