DIY Modern Plant Stands

Thrifty Thursday

Here is a quickie little project that will give your patio or interiors a splash of modern cool.  I love that this is repurposing something that tends to be in abundance by the end of summer: tomato cages.  Whether you have old rusty cages, or brightly colored powder coated ones like these, the result is a collection of stands that gives you versatility of height and some sick lines!

At first, it may seem more than a little daunting to cut through the metal of these cages.  It actually is pretty darn thick.  However, if you give it a bit of a push and pull while you are cutting, the metal will snap off quicker than you would think (thank goodness…phew).

To create varied heights, simply remove the vertical wires up to the bottom circle for a tall one, and up to the middle circle for a shorter stand.

Not rocket science, I know…but I love the playfulness of them.  I think I will be experimenting with this one even more.  They feel so clean and unobtrusive.

Ahhh, how lovely is the silence of growing things…
