New Purpose for Old Wood Crate

I found an old cranberry box on the side of the road & turned it into a plant stand. My easiest project ever.
Purchased 3/4x18in piping & fittings from a large box hardware store (HD). Attached fittings to box with 3/4in flat head wood screws.
Screwed on pipes and attached fittings for the feet. I also attached felt pads to protect my floors.
I lined with a heavy duty trash bag to prevent water overflow.
Here you go !😊

Suggested materials:

  • Wood crate, 3/4x18in steel pipes & fittings, 3/4in flat head wood screws

    Are the feet the same as the pipe fittings on the box? Did you put felt on the bottoms?
