Stand Update Advice

I have discovered that pots 3" and up fit the shelves just fine; however, anything smaller needs to be carefully balanced.

I would suggest you get some sort of rack to make the smaller pots more stable. Today (Sunday) I'm checking into the Mainstays 3-Tier Bamboo Cabinet Organizers at Wal-Mart (if mine has them). They look as if they should do the trick.

Other than that small glitch I love these stands; they are so airy compared to the plastic ones I had.

I recently bought some poles for metro shelving from a company on, and saw these shelf liners. Take a look.

Thank you.


RE: Stand Update Advice

Thanks, EA, but my shelves are 18 x 48 so these won't fit. I think they're a great idea except I can't find anywhere if they are heat resistant and can be used over the fluorescent fixtures. I did find a site which indicates there are four per package but the Amazon seller doesn't say.


RE: Stand Update Advice

Another option is the fluorescent light panels (not the grids) that are available in Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. They can be trimmed to fit. There are different styles that allow different amounts of light through.
