tiered crate plant stands

Clearing out the clutter? Looking to make a fresh start? We recommend organizing your space with the clean white lines of this tiered plant stand. It’s made from simple wooden storage crates that we just painted and stacked. Add your botanical buddies for a lively, leafy finish.
Step 1
First, prep your wood crates. Lightly sand any rough areas on the outside of each crate, then brush or gently wipe away the debris. Now, you’re ready to paint! 
Step 2
Paint each of the six crates using Pure White enamel paint. Let them all dry completely, then touch them up with a little more paint, or add a second coat, if needed.
 
TIP: Before painting, take a moment to decide how you’d like to stack the crates to make your plant stand. This will help you figure out which areas of the crates (the insides, for example) that will not be visible, there is no need to paint them. 
Step 3
Stack your crates as you planned to build your stand. If you’re worried about them falling over, just use a bit of wood glue to secure them to one another. Don’t forget to give the glue time to dry! 
Step 4
Want to pretty up your pots? Paint them with Americana Décor® Satin Enamels™. We used Classic Black, but choose your favorite color or color to match your décor. There are plenty to choose from in the assortment! 
Step 5
Once your pots are dry, fill them with plants and place them on top of the crates in the order you like best.
