Why not transform a boots tray into an indoor plant stand?

Yes, you heard that right – the same boots tray that we usually use for keeping our boots/shoes.

As an interior designer, I’m always on the lookout for unique and creative ways to add some personality and style to any space. And when it comes to bringing a touch of nature indoors, there’s no better way to do it than with plants.

But as much as we love our leafy friends, keeping them healthy and tidy can be a challenge. That’s where Good Directions boot trays come in – these handy trays are perfect for holding muddy footwear, but they also make surprisingly stylish indoor plant stands.

So, are you ready to give your plants a whole new wardrobe? You should surely try this DIY project and see for yourself how a humble boots tray can be transformed into a plant stand that’s both elegant and functional.

Having said that, let’s get started with the process of transforming our boots tray into a beautiful plant stand.

Get Your Hands Messy: Turning the Boots Tray into a Plant Stand

Now it’s time to get creative and transform your amazing boots tray into a charming plant stand. You can start by painting the tray in any color that complements your home decor or leave it as-is for a rustic look. Then, add some of your favorite potted plants; just make sure they’re ones that thrive indoors and don’t require too much sunlight.

With the right plants, you can create your very own mini garden in no time!

To finish off your indoor plant stand, infuse charm into your space with decorative gems like stones, moss, or those cute little figurines. These creative additions not only elevate your plant display but also harmonize it with your existing decor, creating a unique and captivating vibe in your space.

One of the benefits of using boot trays as plant stands is their versatility. You can place them in any room of your home, from the entryway to the living room.

Picking the Right Boots Tray for You!

First things first, let’s discuss durability. You have to make sure that the tray you pick is sturdy enough to hold the weight of your plants.

Right Size

Last, but not least, let’s talk aesthetics. The tray’s style is also an essential factor to consider. Whether you are looking for something that seamlessly blends in or a tray that makes a bold statement? The choice is yours!
