So I couldn’t find a plant stand that was the height or look I wanted so Bunnings to the rescue again! I did realise halfway for a stand this height I needed a secondary support at the bottom so ended up doing a cross lap joint on both. Still need to decide on a colour, should I varnish it walnut or paint it white? :smile: Plant was also from Bunnings.

Re: DIY plant stand

Hi @joineryjo,

 

That's a fantastic looking plant stand you have created there. Your joints look amazing and very minimalistic.

 

It always brings me great joy to see people living in apartments completing timber projects like this. For the colour, I would do a whitewash coat of paint and distress it with some sandpaper. In a shabby chic sort of styling. It really depends on your decor as to what would fit well.

 

Many thanks for sharing and I'll be looking forward to seeing what project you contribute next.

 

Well done.

 

Mitchell

Re: DIY plant stand

Really like it. I might create one for my home. 

Did you cut the wood by yourself or got it cut in bunnings?
