The Great Plant Stand

The Great Plant Stand

Hello Everyone!

This post is a bit late, but here it is.

Well it’s the time of year again for gardening… And as you can see I had a huge lack of space! No home for my garden seedlings. Luckily, spring cleaning happened in my office and they had some leftover planks.

So we had the shelving and just needed some supports. The hubs found affordable wood stringers, legs and angle brackets.

End of Day 1: We put in most of the work on this project on day 1. At this point it was a bit unstable and had a nice tilt to it, so we left it against the wall.

End of Day 2: One more shelf. Now it was more stable.

FIN: …And we are done!

Cost breakdown:

4 structural legs $10/piece = $40

8 stringers $1.30/board = $10.40

Angle brackets $3 for 4, used 8 per shelf. Total = $24

Total spent = $74.40

Total savings for four 6 foot planks about $60.

Not a bad price for a solid wooden piece of furniture.

Happy DIY-ing!



Bathroom Sink Organization


Yard sales can often be places where you somehow find exactly what you need. For the past few months the area under my bathroom sink has been getting more and more cluttered. Then I find a few random yard sales this past Saturday to go to and WHAM! storage solution solved. This chrome/stainless steel 2 drawer system goes for $30-$40 and the wonderful lady who sold it to me wanted only $3. Did I mention how much I love yard sales? They have spoiled me. It’s so hard to shop in regular stores when I know eventually I can find something gently used on one of my Saturday yard sale excursions. This organization took only 20 minutes.

Unfortunately I do not have any before pictures, but just imagine a bathroom sink cabinet over filled and a HUGE pain to find anything. Now I can actually find what I need! It’s amazing.

Happy Yard Sale Hunting!
