I get soooo many questions about the stacking planter I have by my side door. Confession: it isn't really a stacking planter! It's an organizer I found at Ross Dress for Less a few years ago. I popped the canvas liners out and fill the baskets with seasonal flowers throughout the year. It has a small footprint and gives me the chance to make use of vertical space, which is perfect for my narrow little side porch!
I've never known where to direct people who ask me where they can find something like it, so I decided to do some research and put together a shopping list of similar items! I should make a disclaimer here: I don't think any of these stacking organizers/planters are actually meant to be outside. Most of them look like they're meant to be kitchen/pantry storage. In fact, your best bet for turning up similar items in an online search is to use the terms "floor-standing fruit baskets" (lots of hours of research went into finding that answer...you're welcome)!
My stacking planter has been outside for three years and it's weathered the elements beautifully...I haven't had to do anything with it! But just keep in mind that these items are meant for indoor use, so if you start to see any rust/wear spots after having them outside, you might want to give them a quick spray paint touch-up! Another tip -- my baskets are pretty deep, so I stuff some burlap in the bottom of each to lift my plants up a bit.

I love this 3-tier metal basket from Joss and Main because it's simple and would really allow the flowers, foliage or whatever you're putting in it to shine!
This floor-standing basket from Wards is extra special because of it's coppery-brass finish. Might be a little tougher to touch up if needed, but totally worth the extra effort for such a fun, metallic statement!
This option from Amazon comes with small chalkboard labels...probably best-suited for covered porches. I think this would be a great way to label and display fresh herbs!
Another Amazon find, this one is the most affordable of the bunch! I love the wood-handle detailing. One thing to keep in mind -- the first two options I shared have tilted baskets, which might make it a little easier to display florals. These next few have baskets that are standing upright. Something to consider if you want to display tall or drape-y plants!
This one from Home Depot has the tiniest scroll detailing on the bottom legs. I also really like the long handles of each basket...they almost remind me of a wire egg basket or picnic basket!
