I just got some new succulents and they’re all look super cute. At first, I lined them up along my balcony, but it took a lot of space and I was worried it would get kicked accidentally. So, when I saw my mom’s old two tiered plastic rack, I just grab it as it is already a junk for my mom. I painted it with white, yup, my favorite solution is to paint everything in white. And of course, I turned the plastic rack into a succulent tiered planters, which helps me organize my succulent pots and save more space.
I add a little modern farmhouse sign with the words; “My Garden” which I made about a month ago. It’s super easy and quick to make over the plastic rack into a great looking tiered planters. Just a little washing work and a painting job. Interested? Let’s find out more on how I made a tiered planters for my succulent from an old plastic rack.
Things To Prepare
Short list of materials is the best upcycled project for me. Tools and material that easy to be found is very helpful to make easier and fast to be done. Let’s go straight to the list of supplies. Here is the list of supplies to make my Upcycled Tiered Plastic Rack Planters :
- Old Tiered Plastic Rack
- White spray paint
- A Farmhouse Sign
- Hot glue
How To Make
This upcycled plastic rack project that I’ve turned into two tiers planters is mostly a painting job. What I did was basically just change the plastic rack’s color and add a simple farmhouse sign. To be clearer, let’s just go to the tutorial on how to make my Upcycled :
1 .Clean the old plastic rack and make sure it’s really clean for good painting result.
2 .Spray white paint to the rack evenly. Let it dry.
3 I took my My Garden sign that I’ve made and glue it by using hot glue to the front plastic tiered planters. And done!
I love how it turned out, an old unattractive plastic rack has become a fancy tiered planters for my succulents. I hope you would do the same thing to your plastic racks that’s ages; because usually old plastic racks tend to loose its color and that would look bad to the appearance. Therefor, most people would just throw it away. But, you could make use of it and turn the plastic rack into something useful and beautiful, like my tiered plastic planters.
