I scratched my head and remembered that I had a large piece of jute rope from a previous project for the dinner table.
Then I saw the IKEA stool standing in the hall. And the structure of the future piece of plant stand with an obelisk for the plant to climb, popped into my mind.
To create the stand, the first thing was to take the IKEA Frostа stool and shortened its legs a bit.
For the obelisk, I used 4 bamboo sticks. Considering the weight of branches of the plant, I decided to not just fasten the bamboo sticks with ropes to the stool’s legs. Instead, I screwed the bamboo through a piece of metal strap to the legs. This completes the second step.
Lastly, where the bamboo sticks meet, tie them together with the jute rope.
