Here's my second set of cinderblock plant stands. This one is 2 large and one half block high. I will have to find a really level place for it. On the turquoise and tangerine side I still have to glue in the sisal rope I painted for the stem.
I have been grouting a little each day on edgers, plant stands and other things. I hate it but my workspace is clearing out a little bit.

Saw this in person, and it's WONDERFUL. Love the idea of the rope.

RE: Another one finished

Do you make these in the spot you want them? Or are you able to move them around? Im taking it they are connected together. But they are wonderful! You really do a nice job.

Crafty- I make these on my outside worktable. I work on three turntables one for each block/ I work on each side on all three. Sometimes I stack them on the worktable to draw the design on them in chalk. I do all my tiles with thinset and then grout each one individually and seal, then I stack them. I will be moving this set somewhere in the yard or on the patio today. I do not stick them together as I couldn't move them. I do good to move one at a time.
Thanks to all for the compliments.

I always learn so much from you, Flag! I love the look of that round piece done with the footers (that I normally would have thrown away), and the use of curved pieces shows how easily they are incorporated and makes one more confident that they can be used. I really really like this piece. I am a bird and flower enthusiast, and I find this plant stand quite wonderful!

Maddy - the tess I am using is broken pots and plates. I am really using up scraps.
Gail - I love using the footers as they add such dimension. I never throw them away, they are great to use on the edgers I am doing and I have used a bunch of the Fiesta footers on the plaster pillar I am working on.
Thanks to all of you for your praise...I appreciate it.

Flag this is really gorgeous, and so clever! I love the vine climbing up between the blocks. any chance of a photo where they will end up? I love seeing pics of projects in their final spot.
