Give your plants the space they deserve by building your own DIY planter stand! This easy and simple design can be adapted to any environment and built in under 2 hours -maybe less, if you are an experienced tubetinker!
You can choose the color of tubes you prefer on our online shop or even paint them! You can even move the structure outside once your plants are ready, just remember to protect the DIY planter stand and not use galvanized pipes if you plan to eventually use your planter outdoors –this article will help you design, build and protect your structure for outdoor use-!
