Over at IKEA Hackers they've featured a great plant stand creation that's made from a bit of leftover wood and an IKEA laundry bag holder. The idea is simple, and often IKEA's metal framework pieces of this nature can be quite sturdy when a flat surface is screwed to the top.

The result looks sleek, modern and without a hint of the whimsy or old world feel that so many plant stands are plagued with. It's a great tutorial to get you thinking about how you can showcase your plants instead of just shoving them in a corner to be forgotten about.
