It’s Angela from Number Fifty-Three and I’m excited to share this DIY wood plant stand I worked on with you all.
I think it adds the perfect cozy vibe to any room in your home.
Supplies: wood slice (I found mine at the craft store), hammer and screwdrivers, sandpaper, stain, poly, small level, and 3″ corner braces in your choice of finish
I started out by carefully removing the bark from my wood slice with a screwdriver and hammer, working slowly until I had it all removed. I then used medium grit sandpaper to thoroughly smooth the side of the wood slice.
Next, I stained the entire piece. Note: the stain soaked in far more on the top of the wood slice than on the side, which created an effect that I really did not like. I remedied that by lightly sanding the top until I achieved my desired color. Once, the stain dried, I applied a few coats of poly.
Lastly, I attached the corner braces to the wood slice, making sure that it was sitting level. Once they were attached, I carefully bent the end up towards the center to create little feet.
You can see more of what I was talking about with the feet here…
Isn’t the wood beautiful without the bark on it?
I love this little wintery scene in my living room.
Those pine clippings are actually left over from Christmas. I clipped them from our yard and stuck them in water and they actually seems to be growing roots and little pale green pine cones. Is that even possible? This is actually on top of our radiator so maybe that has something to do with it!
