Re-purposed Drawer Plant Stand

October 18, 2014
 My plant stand started with this drawer purchased for $5 at a consignment shop.

 This white pedestal was purchased for $7.50 at an antique shop. (And already painted white.)

This old drawer hardware was free.

Then, I attached the drawer to the pedestal using four screws through the bottom of the drawer.  The extra large pull was attached to the drawer front.  I added a square of panning metal to the bottom of the drawer in case of moisture seepage through the flowerpot.  Next I painted it all with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

Then after distressing and waxing with clear wax, I had a new plant stand!

 Perfect for a house plant, like this prayer plant.

Really easy, (no sawing) cute, and pretty inexpensive!

  2. Turned out it!!

  3. I love it! So pretty. Just wondering, is it steady? thinking about doing it.

  4. Carlene,
    What a cute and clever idea. Love this.

  6. Cute!
    easy peasy... a no brainer for you.
    Now that I've seen yours... it's a no brainer for me too! ;)
    thanks for showing it...

  7. Carlene, you are always so inventive. I love checking out what new item you re-purposed.

  8. Fun idea, Carlene! I can just imagine filled with other things, too...hydrangea, greens, pumpkins...

  9. What a fun repurposing project and so easy to put together. Of course I'm loving the vintage price tag too. Thank for sharing over at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  10. What a wonderful idea. I have a lovely shaped plant stand and when I got the finish off of it, it was MDF and not wood with a grain. This will work great; just have to find a nice drawer. I am always leery of having plants on a stand with cats in the house. This should solve the problem. I love it. Thank you for sharing.

  11. wow! this is one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments! I love the repurposed drawer plant stand! It's perfectly adorable!



  12. What a great idea! One more reason to keep my eye out for free curbside items. Question: what do you mean by planning metal? Thanks
