stick-y plant stand

I'm not a girl that loves yard work. I enjoy pretty flowers but
I really despise weeding, raking, mulching, toiling, etc. So to
beautify my outside space I've decided that potted plants are
the way to go! I wanted some big planters but I wanted some
cute small ones as well. Cute small potted plants need cute
tables right? Here's my outdoors inspired plant stand/table.
I started by making half inch cuts from a bunch of sticks lying
around the yard. (gotta love free materials right?) Then I
glued, sanded, and added polyurethane. It still wasn't looking
quite right and I started to worry a bit.
So I cut a strip of metal to glue and tack around the outer edge
of my table top. That was exactly what it needed....oh and it
also needed some aqua table legs, because I'm currently
obsessed with that color!

I really love how it turned out and It's lookin' pretty with
a pretty little plant sitting there.


  1. I LOVE this!! It was one of my favorites on OMTWI!

    Congrats on making the finals!!

  2. Hahahaahahh! "Cut from a million sticks." Awesome! This rocks and major props for cutting those million.


  3. What a unique idea. Is there a tabletop under there that you glued the sticks to?
