I used an old wire egg basket and a thrift store floor lamp stand to make this outdoor flower stand. The basket is lined with black landscape cloth and a hanging basket liner. ASSEMBLY
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLANT STANDRemove lamp assembly and wiring from lamp stand, leaving the threaded nipple that connected it to the stand.Paint the stand & basket if desired. We used rust preventive outdoor paint. Cut a block from a piece of pressure treated wood. We used an old piece that we had on hand and cut our block approx. 1"x 5 ½ " x 5 ½".Then drill a hole in the block that will allow it to slip down over the nipple and fit snuggly onto the stand. You will now need to countersink a nut onto the nipple. The block should now be firmly seated.Next, center the basket onto the block and attach as shown in photo.If using the plant stand outdoors you will need to anchor it to the ground. We used two 1/2" pieces of rebar that were about 2 feet long. This will depend on the soil type. If using rebar, you will need a torch to bend a 90 degree angle that will fit over the top of the base as shown in photo. You can be creative with any of these steps, but be sure that it is weather proof and sturdy.
Did you know that carbon monoxide detectors have an expiration date? Most are good for 5-7 years on average. Over the weekend, my hardwired smoke/ CO detector went off and would not
reset. We decided to call the fire depatment just to be safe and they confirmed that the alarm was failing and needs replacement. On most CO alarms, there is a tag on the back or inside the battery compartment which will have a date of manufacture or an expiration date (as shown w/ pencil in photo). Always keep the instructions in an accessable place for quick reference if an alert should sound, or to confirm when yours needs replacement. Carbon Monoxide is a real hazard and if you have a gas burning appliance in your home you definitely should have at least one CO detector.
Not sure who sells these but will let you know as soon as I find out or maybe someone here knows. Our Vet just posted it on FB I love the deck idea too. I wonder if I could make it out of pallets and old cedar?
