Learn how to make this beautiful wooden outdoor plant stand for multiple plants with just a few simple steps.
I love to bring my houseplants out in the summer and give them lots of light and warm air. However, I don't have enough room to put them all. Sometimes I'll place some on the front steps, but recently I came up with an idea to make an outdoor plant stand that will hold multiple plants.

Currently, it's holding about ten plants which is pretty good. I could probably squeeze in a couple more.
How to Make a Wooden Outdoor Plant Stand
It all started with this cedar lattice we found at Lowes. This piece measured about 6 feet tall and cost about $20. I thought about buying two of them to create an even bigger/taller plant stand but decided to stick with one.
First, cut the lattice in half. My husband used a jigsaw for this step.
Then we held the two halves together with the vertical boards facing out and attached two hinges on top.
Next, he cut out some of the vertical boards in two places to make a space to slide in the shelves.
The shelves were made from a 12 inch by 6-foot piece of pine also at Lowes for about $13.
This 6-foot board was cut into two pieces. One 2.5 feet and the other 3.5 feet.
Now we had a great outdoor plant stand for many of my plants.
To protect the wood and make the piece look uniform, I used a can of spray stain all over the stand.
It fits perfectly on our patio. I'm even thinking about bringing it indoors for the winter. I'll just have to find something to add to the bottom to protect our wood floors.
You know what that means. More room for more plants!
