DIY Farmer's Market Display Stand + Home Depot Giveaway

I’m so excited to be sharing a little project I’ve completed as part of ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot’s, “Get It, Got It, Go” Summer Blog Hop hosted by Centsational Girl. All of the projects featured were completed with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and supplies purchased at The Home Depot so I know they will provide lots of inspiration to everyone who enjoys a good DIY project.

Like most city dwellers, I’m short on space so I like to make the most of vertical space I do have whenever possible. Nowhere is that more true than in the backyard!

When the weather turned warmer, I cooked up the idea to build a farmers market inspired garden stand to display plants, organize garden doodads and use for party displays. I’m so happy with how it turned out and am excited to share it with you.

Farmers Market Garden Stand DIY | www.brooklynlimestone.com

I started off with some basic supplies:
1x3 lumber (for the tray frames and sign)
1x2 lumber (for the A frame)
Garden stakes (for the tray slats)
Wood screws
Wood Glue
Chalkboard paint
Miniwax® Stain in Classic Gray
6 Roofers Nails
1 piano hinge
ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for Delicate Surfaces with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2080EL

The build was simple and can most easily be broken down into 3 parts: trays, frame and signage.

After making all of my cuts, I built 3 trays by screwing the tray frame together and then screwing in the slats at the bottom.

Once that was complete, I built an A frame to support the trays via rungs and scrap wood chucks along with a space at the top for a farmers market inspired sign.

After building each part separately I gave the entire piece a rough coat of the stain to instantly transform the very fresh wood into something with a bit more character.

Once that was dry, it was time to add a little charm and function with the chalkboard paint. Using the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for Delicate Surfaces with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector, I taped of a rectangular shape on both the front of the trays as well as the 3 planks I was using for my signage. To add a little more visual interest, I cut 4 circular shapes from the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and placed them at the edges of the rectangle. I then gave each uncovered area a few light coats of the chalkboard paint and let dry for a few moments before removing the tape and allowing the paint to cure completely.

Finally I laid the trays in their designated spots on the frame and nailed the sign boards in at the top and voila, the build was complete. Not only does it work beautifully as a plant stand but it’s great as a garden party bar stand. I think I’ll be getting quite a lot of use out of this little project.

    1. Thanks Heidi. I rarely really make something from complete scratch so I'm really proud of this one. My favorite part is when people ask me where I got it and I tell them I made it! Funny how that sort of thing thrills me :)

  14. Love this little stand. It would look so gorgeous with ferns as well against the black...great job!! I love DIY and making things from scratch, this past winter I made my own outdoor sectional and it was so satisfying to finish it and be able to show my friends I made it all by myself.....it's my de-stressor while my husband was deployed, I just love making new things. He comes home next weekend and I can't wait to show him the lounge and see what he says about it. I'd use the giftcard for some new paint.

    1. Thanks!

      No, I'm not using it anymore b/c it toppled over during Hurricane Sandy and some of the pots broke. It would be easy enough to make more (just drilling a hole to hang) but I figured it was a good opportunity to try something different this year.

      I already have a new idea :)

  28. It looks fantastic! I love how you will be able to change its use with all the chalkboards...I'm getting married in the countryside, I think this would look beautiful to display all the ceremony programs or favours for guests, I love it!
