It’s here! It’s reveal day for our #BEHRBox challenge! I’ve been so excited to share what we put together after our last post. To refresh your memory, BEHR sent us a big beautiful box full of inspiration to create a DIY project that you can recreate over a weekend, all based on their Color of the Year, In the Moment. All of the items in our box were in tune with our personal theme of Inner Self, which got me thinking of calming spaces and simplicity. I started to put a mood board together to get some inspiration while we were brainstorming.

Natural paint colors mood board

I found that I kept wanting to combine plants with the cool shade and natural textures. So after thinking for a while, I realized that was the perfect idea — filling our home with plants always makes it feel more open and airy, and sort of clears my head. So we used those beautiful Liberty Hardware brass casters to create a rolling plant stand! It’s a simple project that adds a pretty, modern touch to your space. Here’s how to make your own.

Materials

  • 2″ wooden dowel
  • miter saw
  • table saw
  • Liberty hardware brass casters
  • BEHR paint in In the Moment and Kombucha
  • drill
  • wood glue
  • 1 1/2″ screw
  • ruler

Make Time: 2 Hours (Plus Drying Time)

Step 1: Measure the base of your planter pot. Cut two lengths of the wooden dowel (using the miter saw) that are each 2″ longer than the width of the base of your pot.

Step 2: Mark a 2″ section in the center of each dowel. Set your table saw to a 1″ depth and notch out the 2″ section on each dowel.

Step 3: Screw the two pieces together, creating a cross with the two dowels meeting where they have been notched out. Apply a bit of wood glue where they meet to strengthen the cross.

Step 5: Use a drill to create a pilot hole on the end of each of the four legs of the plant stand. Screw in one wheel to each pilot hole.

Step 5: Use BEHR paint to paint the wood as you desire. Allow the paint to fully dry. To recreate our painted look, paint all of the wood with the Kombucha shade. Allow to dry. Then mask off the top half of the wood and paint the lower half with In the Moment. Remove painter’s tape and allow to dry.

Step 6: Add your plant and enjoy!

IĀ love the look of the plant stand, and the simple touch it adds to the room! The hidden pop of cool color on the underside of the stand might just be my favorite part. The brass casters make it look polished but function beautifully and make it easy to roll our plants from room to room. We loved the stand so much we actually got another set of the casters to create an extra stand for another one of our larger plants. I guess we were inspired! šŸ˜‰ Here’s hoping you’re inspired too. xoxo

    I loved the final product, it looks great!
    But I also LOVED the scallop tiles, they are so gorgeous. Can you tell me the brand and where you got it?

    Thank you,
