How to Find Cheap Plant Stands How to Find Cheap Plant Stands
Cheap plant stands are a great way to spruce up your home, both indoors and outdoors, without breaking the bank in the process. Some plants are best placed on plantstands, such as the black walnut, as these will grow over other plants and can kill them. However, finding something within your budget isn’t always the easiest thing in the world. If you are having trouble finding an affordable plant stand for your home, here some tips on where to look and even how to make your own.
Even if you can’t afford them, there is nothing wrong with walking through home and garden stores to see what sort of plant stands are available to get an idea of what would work best for your home. If you come across something that you truly love, take note of its model number if it has one, or at least write down things like size, materials, brand name, etc. Then, you may be able to find the same plant stand or something similar elsewhere at a cheaper price. Window shopping can also give you some great inspiration if you decide to make your own.
Internet shopping has taken a lot of the guess work out of price comparisons. You can browse from your home and find the price that works for you. If there is a particular plant stand that you like, the Internet is where you’re most likely to find the best deal on it. As long as you know the manufacturer name, a quick search will bring you many sites to compare from.
Make Your Own
When all else fails, for the ultimate cheap touch of originality, just make your own plant stand. It may not be a "fancy" wrought iron or stone plant stand, but building one yourself may be easier on your wallet and fun.
Think Outside the Box
Remember that it doesn’t have to be called a plant stand to be a plant stand. Anything with a flat surface will do. Go to a flea market and pick up an old bedside table, bench, etc. to use. One nice idea for a cheap antique feel is to convert an old, wooden ironing board into a plant stand. Even an old ladder can be cut down to create an attractive plant stand.
