Upcycled Plant Tables

Since my recent fail at a plant table I have been looking for ideas to make my table more sturdy. I like this old treadle sewing machine base with a custom top made from metal flashing and vintage wood blocks. The red paint really makes it zing.

I don't see any reason why these suitcase tables couldn't be used as a plant stand. I would pick a quirky plant to keep with the theme.

How lovely is this ladder plant stand? I like that it's painted a pretty blue. Makes me wish I had a corner like this too.

I would totally use this desk as a plant table, like the legs and narrow top. It's supposed to be a diy, but they seem to skim over the how on the site. Anyway,
I need to fix what I have.

I like this funky plant stand/ bric a brac holder and it's quirky charm.

I love this trio of stools, they could take the weight of my slab of wood. This is the idea I'm going with and I've been looking for some stools that are interesting. I've been going to thrift stores and watching craigslist, they haven't turned up yet, but it's just a matter of time, right?


  1. Great blog! A friend told me you posted one of my creations. Thanks a bunch! It was the first of many sewing machine base tables I've made so far. The blocks on the top are the same blocks I played with as a child some 35 years ago! Keep up the great work!

  2. Thank you and your welcome - your table is awesome!
