Create a Mini Mid-Century Modern Plant Stand

DIY Plant Stand

I‘ve had a jade plant in my home now for over 10 years. It got so out-of-control big that I eventually had to cut it back a bit since the branches were starting to bend over from the weight of the leaves. I took all of the cut branches and replanted them (did you know you could do that with jades?!?!). I added one of the Jade branches to a square cement planter I had made. My planter has been sitting on a windowsill in my kitchen for about a year. It appears to really love the sun it gets in this spot.  Just the other day, I decided it could use something more to stand out.

To give my planter the lift it needed, I decided to create a quick and easy plant stand. I used an old wooden frame I had bought awhile back and thought it would be a great fit for my square planter. I was able to find these small wooden pieces that looked like Mid-Century Modern legs.  Truth be told, they were actually wooden doll bodies.  I am not really sure how these actually worked as doll bodies, but thought they would make great legs fro my planter.  The tapered legs  gave off a Mid-Century Modern vide, which I loved! In just a few minutes, I was able to transform a square wooden frame into an unexpected plant stand perfect for a window, table, or shelf!
