Wine Crate Plant Stand {DIY}

Wine Crate Plant Stand

Last summer I found two remarkable wine crates at a swap meet and the seller didn’t know what he had. He gave me a price of $3 per crate. I was ecstatic. I bought both. There are so many amazing things you can do with wine crates! I just couldn’t believe this man was willing to give these up. . but so super happy he was.

Choosing exactly what to do with my two crates was not an easy task. I used one crate to create a plant stand {that I will talk about in this post} and I used my other crate in my dining room remodel. There are still so many other things I’d like to do with a few more crates. I am crossing my fingers that I will happen across a few more this upcoming summer.

This plant stand repurpose project is an easy one. All I really wanted was something that would hold a plant and cover the base of the plant, dirt and container. I don’t care too much for black plastic plant containers in my living room. This little repurpose project did the trick. Not only it is sturdy but it also matches with the rest of my homes decor.

How did I make it? Really, it’s no big secret, all you need to do is to find a crate and add legs to it.

The legs can be added by purchasing leg brackets and simply screwing them into the bottom of the crate. These brackets can be found at most home improvement stores or you can take them off old furniture you find roadside.

After the leg brackets are on, you can simply screw a chair leg into the designated hole provided on the leg bracket. Easy Peasy.

I had so many ideas of what to store in this crate before finally deciding on making it a plant stand. I even considered adding a top and turning it into a seat or table.

What do you think? What would you use this container for in your home if it were yours?
