DIY Plant Stand

DIY Plant Stand 11 2048x - DIY Plant Stand

A DIY plant stand on a whole new level.

Who knew a plant stand could look like this? I love creating new things and this hands down is one of my favs.

What made this project even better was getting to use my new DEWALT 20-Volt Drill/ Driver Combo Kit. I have always known DEWALT to be a top brand and this drill and driver didn’t disappoint. They are usually more expensive than other brands, but you get what you pay for.

One thing I really liked about this Drill and Driver Combo Kit is the lightness of it. I also have a 18V and the difference in weight is insane. My DEWALT 18V has more power, but the difference isn’t too much of a difference; I definitely prefer the lighter 20V drill, especially working on projects where I have to hold it for long periods of time.

Both tools are part of the DEWALT 20-Volt Max system and are compatible with all 20-Volt Max batteries, chargers and accessories and the kit is  backed by a DEWALT 3-year limited warranty The combo kit comes packed with the DEWALT Impact Drill and Driver, two DEWALT batteries, a battery charger and a carrying bag; sounds like a steal to me.

Hopefully you guys enjoy watching me build this cool plant stand and be sure to check out the plans below!

Step 1: Cut the bottom of the four (6ft) 2x2s at a 5 degree angle using a 12” Ridgid Sliding Miter Saw

Step 3: Attach the top (5 1/16″) 2×2 top piece to the 2×2 sides using a Kreg Jig on a 1 1/2″ setting, with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue.. Repeat step for the other side of the DIY plant stand. Repeat this step for the other side of the plant stand. Note: Top piece should be cut at a 3 degree angle.

DIY Coat Rack 2 1024x1024 - DIY Plant StandStep 4: Attach the (14 1/2″) bottom, (12 3/8″) middle and (10″) top 2×2 side connectors using a Kreg Jig on a 1 1/2″ setting, with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue..

DIY Coat Rack. 3 1024x1024 - DIY Plant StandStep 5: Using a Bandsaw cut out the notches on the plywood shelving, and add the shelves to the plant stand using wood glue, a brad nailer, and brad nails. I had to cut the shelving in half in order to fit it into the plant stand frame. If you use wood filler to fill in the crack you will barely be able to notice that the shelving top is cut in two.DIY Coat Rack 4 1024x1024 - DIY Plant StandI loved how simple this project was, and love even more how it turned out. This was the perfect weekend project and I think I may have to build me a couple more. Just a little secret this DIY plant stand was initially supposed to be a coat rack but after some feedback on Instagram, the project got changed.

DIY Plant Stand 2 1024x1024 - DIY Plant StandI love that this project was originally meant for something else but evolved into something else. HA, a day in the life of Ashley.

20 cool diy garden bed and planter ideas 5d7b542762f8b - 20 Cool DIY Garden Bed and Planter Ideas

Gardening is a wonderful hobby, but also one that requires a lot of time, knowledge and dedication. While some people only have gardens for vanity or because they inherited the garden with their house, true hobbyist gardeners love to tend to their plants and watch them flourish.

Having said that, sometimes you need to be creative in your garden, either to fill a small space or get a different look that breaks the normal patterns you see in every other garden.

Arranging your flower beds in a unique way or customizing your planters can do wonders for the aesthetic of your garden. Not only that, though, creating this unique garden setting will challenge you and allow your creativity to flow in unexpected ways.

This project doesn’t need to come entirely from your gray mass though. In fact, we have put this article together to help you get started.

15 cool diy coffee station ideas 5d7b542b22ea6 - 15+ Cool DIY Coffee Station Ideas

Coffee is pretty much a universal drink in the modern world. While people from different cultures may make, serve and drink it in different ways. it is pretty much safe to say that you can have coffee in virtually any country around the world.

Some people might prefer to have their espressos or lattes out of home and on the go, but it is always nice and important to be able to make and serve coffee when you’re hosting family or other guests, if nothing else.

Most people opt for small espresso machines nowadays, which they can set in a corner of their kitchen so it stays out of the way. Having a real coffee station, complete with the coffee machine, pods, cups, mugs. sweeteners and spoons is much nicer though, especially if you have one with wheels, which you can bring over to the entertainment area during parties.

So if you have the funds, space and are willing to go for it, we’d definitely recommend it for you to get or build a coffee station.

In fact, we’ve put these Cool DIY Coffee Station Ideas together to help make up your mind.
