Even before I had a garden to plant, I had house plants. At one time, I had 204 house plants. Their numbers have dwindled somewhat since I now have a garden, but I will never abandon my house plants entirely.
I also have a 3-season room on the front of my house, and it looks so much better filled with leafy greens. I have to watch myself, however, because all those leafy greens have to come inside in that pesky 4th season that lasts soooooo long.
Problem: Where can I keep these plants? Where will they get the same bright light they prefer?
It sure would be nice if I could use this space. I already have a stand in one corner, but there is only so much room on the landing. Hmmmm...
I know **lightbulb-over-head moment**! I'll use some of those boards from the old bookshelves in the basement to make a plant platform!
Some time with my table saw, jig saw, sander, drill, clamps and foam brush and ta da! Well, maybe not entirely a ta da because, as you can see, I forgot one key step before I made my mitered cuts—I didn't rip the boards to get rid of the old outlet openings...oopsie! Lucky for me, I'm not a perfectionist and I choose to think those "add character."
Hopefully, my plants will live happily ever after traveling between their summer and winter homes!
Thanks for stopping by!
