Do you ever start a project, then one thing leads to another and before you know it you’re on to another project? That’s exactly what happened to me while I was organizing our pantry last month.
There I was emptying, cleaning and sorting our pantry. Stuff. Was. Everywhere. And, I was enjoying every minute of it. Cleaning and organizing is somewhat therapeutic to me. You too?
Back to the story. I was sharing bits and pieces on my insta story and I happened to mention that we needed a fruit stand. Why? Because our fruit was sprawled out all over the countertop, taking up way more space than necessary. We eat a lot of fruit ’round here.
So, desperate for a functional solution – I asked my insta community for farmhouse fruit stand suggestions. A few people delivered. Ok, not even a few. More like a couple. The response I received the most? Requests for me to share the suggestions I received. And since I only received two, I decided to take things into my own hands and round up my favourite farmhouse finds.
Here they are – my favourite farmhouse fruit stands ranging from $9 to $40. Enjoy!

THE FRUIT STAND IN OUR KITCHEN
When choosing a fruit stand for our home, I wanted something that offered ample storage capacity. Remember, we eat a lot of fruit ’round here.
The two tiered options seemed ideal. They would allow us to get our fruit up off the counter and provide sufficient storage by utilizing vertical space. The clearance between our countertop and the bottom of our cabinets was providing to be a challenge. As a result, many of the tiered options were too tall for our space.
As I was browsing Canadian Tire I came across a two tiered basket and noticed that it was four separate pieces – the bottom basket, the top basket, the rod between the baskets and the top rod (see number 7 in the graphic above). I checked the measurements of the stand and figured with a little ‘hacking’ I could make it work. So, I purchased the stand and got to work. And, by get to work I mean I cross threaded the rod onto the bottom basket and handed the project over to my hubs. He gets all the credit for the execution on this one.
Here’s what he did:
- Properly attached the bottom basket to the top basket using the rod provided.
- Secured the top basket to the rod using a bolt, instead of the handle rod provided.
- Painted the top of the bolt black to match the stand.
With a little out of the box thinking and some strength from my husband (if you’ve cross threaded something you know how hard it is to undo), we have a fruit stand that fits our space and our storage needs.
