Repurpose an Old Standing Floor Lamp Into a Plant Stand
I have had these floor lamps for over 15+ years. They have moved with us from house to house and always seemed to find a spot to sit in the living room even though they were never used. Each time they got a new lamp shade to match the new decor, but they were just still sitting there looking sad.
So I took them apart with plans to save the fixture and all the wiring to make new lamps.
The stands just sat
Take all the guts out of the stand and set them aside if you too want to make a new lamp. If your stand is ugly, now would be the time to give it a fresh coat of spray paint if you want.
This is what mine looked like with everything taken apart.
I grabbed a cheap pot from the dollar store. I made a hole in mine so that I could shove a little dowel through the top of the pot and into the stand to help secure the pot on the top a little bit more.
My new plant stand! I love it! Especially for my ivy. I can wrap it around the stem of the stand and let it hang down without getting caught on everything on my table.
