Have you seen the prices for umbrella stands? They go as high as $400, even at Lowes… for an umbrella stand!It just blows my mind. Last weekend I built one for $15. Ana White has great plans for a Pottery Barn inspired umbrella stand/side table which Pottery Barn used to sell for over $300. I painted mine with some left over turquoise paint because I wanted a pop of color on my patio. The project is fairly easy, but there is a ton of cutting involved. Well worth it though, considering I saved a ton of money.
I found an old PVC pipe in the garage which was a perfect piece to hold my umbrella. I poured Quikrete around it and let it dry over night.
I am happy with my umbrella stand. I think it matches my DIY wall art.
