DIY A Cute Plant Stand For Your Patio Using A Few Inexpensive Items

0 8

While you’re shopping for the board, pick up the screws for your DIY project. Silicon-coated stainless steel or bronze screws are the most durable option for outdoor use, and make sure they’re wood or deck screws. They need to be just a little shorter than the thickness of the board so the sharp end doesn’t poke out the top when you attach the brackets to the wood. (That’s unsightly and dangerous!) Tools you’ll need include a pencil or pen and a screwdriver or handheld electric drill and drill bit — make sure the head matches that of your screws.

Arrange all three brackets evenly on the backside of the wooden board. Use a pencil to draw a mark in each of the screw holes, then remove all the brackets. If you’re a proud perfectionist, tape the brackets to the board and turn the entire stand right way up to check they’re in the right place before making any pencil marks. Grab your screws and screwdriver or electric drill and, one at a time, line up a bracket with the marks and screw it to the board. Flip it over to check the board’s stability. If it is a bit wobbly, it may be because you placed some screws deeper than others. Adjust the depth until you lose the see-saw. Now, all that’s left is to decorate your planter! Whether you intend to use the stand indoors or out, you need to know about waterproofing wood.
