Give Your Plants a Lift With This DIY Plant Stand

Mid-Century Modern design is making a big comeback these days. It’s popularity has risen again, especially in the home décor realm. This modern, clean line design can be found all throughout modern day homes and people can’t seem to get enough it.

When it comes to Mid Century Modern design, people are searching high and low at thrift stores, estate sales, garage sales, and rummage sales to land an original piece from the 1950s. Items such as dining tables and chairs, couches, dressers, and home accents are just some of the items that can be found at such places. Finding a piece that is still in good shape and marked at an affordable price can be hard to come by. So, instead of joining the rat-race to find original Mid-Century Modern pieces, people are putting on their creative thinking caps and making their own DIY projects that mimic the aesthetic of Mid-Century Modern design.

Since the Mid-Century Modern look is made up of clean, simple lines, it makes it a little easier to re-create the original looks from the 1950’s. I have seen modern day coffee table and chairs repurposed to give them a Mid-Century Modern look, even though the updated piece is as modern as they come.  I decided to join this movement and create my own Mid-Century inspired plant stand!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Wooden Frame
  • Small Tapered Wood Pieces
  • E600 Glue

Mid century modern frame

Step 1: Grab your frame and remove the glass front and the back. Place it on your table so it is face down. I used a 4×4 inch wooden square frame. You could, however, use whatever size frame you would like.

Step 2: Add a dab of E6000 glue to the bottom (larger side) of your wooden leg.

Step 3: Glue the leg to the bottom of your frame. I made sure that when I glued my wooden leg to my frame that I was close to the edge.

Step 4: Add glue to the remaining three legs and then glue them to the three open corners on your frame. Remember to add your legs as close to the edge as possible. Let the glue on your wooden legs dry for 24 hours to ensure the glue is completely dry.

If you wanted to, you could stain your wooden legs and frame a darker color. I left my wood raw as I loved this brighter look. After my glue was dry, I grabbed my plant and placed it on top of my new Mid-Century Modern style plant holder. My planter was the perfect size and perfect shape for my square plant stand.
