Design plant stand

Materials: 4 Bredskär + 8 Capita legs (21 cm) + screws

Description: I needed a sturdy and design looking plant stand that could fit to the small space I had between my windows and the curtains: 19 cm, which is the exact size of the Bredskär (normally used with kitchen sinks). So I screwed the plastic parts of the Capita legs to two Bredskär that were put upside down, to make everything stable and not slippery (since Bredskär steel is surrounded with rubber), and did the same with the metallic parts of the Capita legs that I screwed to the two other Bredskär which were aimed to sustain the plants pots. Easy and no need to make holes except in the plastic parts of the legs. I hope this idea will be helpful :-)

    the Bredskär on ikea site states that its more than 200$+ .. isnt that a tad bit expensive or is there a Bredskär thats cheaper and not available state side ?

      Indeed, I didn’t buy the whole sink, but only the “basket” that fits to it. I checked several Ikea websites (in Europe & USA) but couldn’t find the basket anymore. Since I bought those Bredskär baskets 2 months ago, I guess they still might be sold apart. Maybe it’s worth asking a vendor if you want to build the same plant stand?
