I have transformed the IKEA SOCKER plant stand to create some privacy on my balcony.

The plant stand originally has rings on it to hold the pots. I removed the rings and sawed 4 wooden boards so they would fit inside the metal construction. I made 2 holes on both ends of each board and looped tie wraps through the holes.

I secured the tie wraps to the metal construction: at the top and at the bottom. Pull the tie wraps and the boards are secured, even when there’s much wind it stands tall!

    Great idea! How did you remove the plant holder rings?

    Nice done. Maybe you kan put a cane mat behind on the barrier. That takes drought, which is healthier for the plants.
