Introduction: Hanging Flower Basket Stand

About: Hi my name is David, I have been working with wood since I was a teenager. I like to build things, also like to take things apart and fixed them. I worked in a Furniture Factory for 22 years before it shutdo...

This week I made my Sister a Hanging Basket Plant Stand for her Birthday. In this Instructable I will show how I did it. I have also included the video from my Youtube channel.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need the following:

1 2" x 4" x 10' long common lumber

1 2" x 6" x 8' long common lumber

Miter Saw

Tape Measure and Pencil

Drill and 1/8" drill bit

16 2 1/2" long Exterior screws

Screw Eye with a 3/4" opening

Stain, Paint, Brushes and rags

Stencil

Hanging Plant

Sandpaper or file

Blue painters tape

Step 2: Cut List

First you will need to cut the 2 x 4 to 2 different lengths.

You will need 2 Pcs 22" long and 2 Pcs 35" long

Then cut the 2 x 6: 1 Pcs 24" long and 1 Pcs 19" long

Step 3: Sand

Sand or file the edges where it chipped out from saw.

Step 4: Stain

I then stain the pieces, using Rust-oleum Kona Stain.

Let the stain set for about 3 minutes, then wipe off the excess.

Allow the parts to dry overnight.

Step 5: Clear Coat

After letting the stain dry overnight, I sprayed a couple coats of Minwax Helmsman Spar Clear Satin Spray Urethane.

Note also let this dry overnight.

Step 6: Paint

I bought a Stencil from Hobby Lobby, used painters tape to secure it to the 19" long 2x6 piece of lumber.

Then I used a pencil to trace the lettering, then took a small paint brush and White craft paint to paint the lettering.

Note pick the best side for painting. Also spray a coat of the clear over the painted Welcome.

Step 7: Assemble the Frame

Now we can assemble the frame of the stand. Take the piece that we painted the Welcome on, place one the the short 2x4's under it and align the 35" long piece even with the top. Then take the drill with the 1/8" drill bit and drill 2 holes in the side and attach with 2 1/2" long screws, do this for both sides.

Then attach the 22" long 2x4's Pieces to the ends as shown in the pictures, do this for all 4 corners.

Step 8: Attach the Base

Now take the 24" long 2x6 piece and align the frame on top, trying to center it as much as possible. Then take the drill with the 1/8" drill bit and drill 4 holes to attach the frame to the base. Then screw in 4 of the 2 1/2" long screws.

Note if you wanted to, you could attach the base from the bottom, to help hiding the screws.

Step 9: Attach the Screw Eye

Now find the center of the bottom of the Welcome part, which is 9 1/2" and make a X. Take the drill with the 1/8" drill bit and drill a hole. This is where we will screw in the Eye Screw. You can start the Eye Screw by hand, but take a screw driver and tighten as shown in the picture.

Step 10: Finish

Now hang the plant up and you are finished. My Sister loved it, Thanks for checking out my Instructable.
