Nautical DIY Wood Plant Stand Supplies:
- Darice Wood Oars – 3
- Round Wood Piece
- Outdoor Paint – Grey
- Coastal Texture Paint – White
- Corner Brackets
Step 1. To begin this DIY wood plant stand, paint the oars and the round wood top piece with the grey paint. I used outdoor paint since my plant stand will be on my covered patio, and I want the paint to withstand the weather. After the first layer of paint had dried, I added a second application. Let the paint dry completely.
Step 3. Dab paint over the stencil. Anytime you stencil you need to be sure to dab the excess paint off your sponge or brush before applying it to your piece. This will keep the paint from seeping under the stencil and smearing. Let the paint dry.
Step 4. Mark where the bracket will go on the oars and the table top. Make pilot holes with a drill.
Note: To make sure the three legs were evenly spaced, I printed a triangle out to use as my guide. You can also measure 60 degree angles to find the correct placement.
This nautical DIY wood plant stand is unique and looks great! You can paint it any color to match your own decor. I filled a Darice netted container with some shells and faux succulents to finish off this piece. I don’t live near the beach, but I feel like I brought a bit of the beach home with this decorative DIY accent piece.
These Darice wood oars can also be used to make nautical DIY wall hangers!
