#plant love!

This past weekend (pre-Halloween weekend!) I was able to put together & test a plant stand. I love plants, but they don't always love me. See the half-dead ground cover in the green pots below - we planted them earlier this year - that chive is looking a little sad too:


And because we were on the heels of Halloween, I decided to use it to hold a bucket of pumpkin heads (they are solar lights!) - this is one of the buckets we turned into planters - so I'll be adding another plant soon/post-Halloween & move the buckets back to the backyard, here.

I like this stand because it can be used indoors or outdoors. It's a little big for my house for indoor use, but I also gave it a trial run inside:



Is that aloe looking a little sad too?

If you use it indoors, the feet have caps to protect your floors:

 
I love how easy this is to put together! No tools are necessary. The pieces ship like this:



Unwrapped:



(I swear the "smiley face" was not intentional & I only noticed it when I uploaded this photo :-)

You then unscrew the caps on each stand (four screws for each stand) & re-screw them into the "legs".



Easy!

Finished product again:


I did have one screw refuse to twist off - a wrench took care of it. It takes less than 15 minutes to put the whole thing together. My only complaint is that Amazon shipped it in a ginormous box & it had SO much paper padding. A bit overkill & I think they could cut that down with bubble wrapped pieces.

It retails for around $27 which I think is a great price - I also think it will last quite awhile as it's all made of metal & very sturdy.

Now I need some healthier plants or figure out how to green up my thumbs!

Cheers,
S

I was able to purchase this plant stand with a generous discount. All opinions are 100% my own.
