Old Plant Stand Makeover
I am a huge fan and I think you will be too, take it away Deb…
All smiles here!
I’m glad to be visiting at Debbie’s online home.
We have a lot in common
in our quest to refresh thrifty finds.
I have so many treasures in line to restore.
I’m going to share a couple of them today.
It was “love at first sight”
when I found this rope in the thrift barn for $5.
I knew I could find some fun use for it.
All of that textural loveliness will give my plant a needed “pick me up”.
So after soaking the rope in a bucket of bleach water
and laying out to dry,
I wrapped and glued the rope
around my plastic pot.
That led to another idea.
What about giving this old plant stand
a new look.
This was a freebie.
But it just doesn’t have that fresh beach house vibe
that I’m going for.
So I cut some beadboard panels to fit around the sides
and hammered off the metal flourish
at the bottom of the stand.
Now it’s shaping up.
After base painting in a gray,
I brushed over in semi-gloss white
leaving random streaks of gray to show through.
Then a little bit of sanding
and a smidge of black glaze in a few places
and there you have it…
a cottagey beachy feel.
That will be such a nice complement to the sisal wrap.

It was so nice to be here today
and meet friends that have the same
thrifty schemes to create fresh personality pieces!
Thanks Deb, you amaze me with your talent!
Go visit Lake Girl Paints, you’ll be glad you did!
