It’s springtime and we are bringing you an outdoor rolling plant stand for your porch! This plant stand is perfect for porches. It can be rolled out for a sprinkle of rain or rolled indoors in the cold winter nights. 

Outdoor Rolling Plant Stand

We have so many small potted plants from trying lots of propagation. This past winter, we were carrying things into the house one by one and it got to be annoying. We had an old bar cart there holding some stuff, but it was a jumbled mess that barely rolled.

So we designed this outdoor rolling plant stand to be the perfect solution for holding plants on our screened porch. It tucks nicely into the corner of our porch. The stand it tall and tiered, giving us multiple levels for plants. Plus, we added four wings to put some smaller pots or viny plants to drape down.

Construction

This rolling plant stand was built to withstand being outdoors. While it is not in directly impact from the elements, we will want to roll it out to get wet in the rain. Therefore, we built the frame with treated 2x2s and used cedar planks to create all the shelves.

We used the amazing cedar planks from CedarSafe. These are the same planks we used when we built our over the toilet storage for our bathroom. CedarSafe planks are so easy to work with, all while looking and smelling great. CedarSafe planks naturally resist bugs, which is great since this is already outside. We love the tung and groove design of CedarSafe’s planks, which was perfect to create a tight seal to form the shelves and wings.

The planks are cut to length and simply nailed into the frame of the stand with a brad nailer. Our plans are designed to fit the size of the planks.

How are the side shelves secured to the main frame? Looks like only one screw in each side. That would not support much weight would it?

No, not a ton of weight. But it works for only having small potted plants.
