DIY Copper Pipe Marble Plant Stand


I sketched out this idea soooo long ago, it is so nice to get it done and on the blog!  I did a couple variations, my original sketch made it look like a mini baby walker when it was done... which was not the look I was trying to achieve.

But, I ended up very happy with the final product- and although I use it as a plant stand, it would make a great diy sidetable too, whatever you need, go for it, I'm not picky!

I have it mostly pictured with my ranunculus bouquet; I am obsessed with these flowers and it has become an unspoken (well, now spoken) rule that they must show up in every DIY I am shooting while they are still alive.


I promise it is easy, I did all the work for you- including creating a walker for a small child out of copper.  I also found a new tool that makes cutting the pipe SO much easier!! But, like a puzzle, it requires quite a few steps, so it is photo heavy, read more after the jump, or just shoot to the bottom for more staged shots with ranunculus flowers...
