DIY Plant Stand Makover

July 13, 2020



Hello blog friends.  

I hope you are all enjoying the summer.  I wanted to give my plant stand a new makeover.  The plant stand I have looked old and was rusted in spots.

The before photo on the left shows how the stand looked old and rusty.  The stand on the right is the painted plant stand makeover.




I put down some newspaper on a table I have in my garage and got busy prepping the plant stand.


I first cleaned the plant stand with some Mrs. Meyers cleaner.  I then used leftover paint I had from my bathroom redo we did a few years ago.

I used for the bathroom walls paint from Valspar called Gravity 4005-1B.


I used a small paintbrush and then I used two coats of paint on the stand.  I let the stand dry overnight.

I'm glad I had the leftover paint to use on the plant stand and make it look pretty.

  10. I am in the middle of painting a chrome shower caddy black, hopefully to hold small potted plants--a thrifted find and a $2 3-light chandelier that I am going to put 3 solar lites in. Even with staying home (I'm retired) with the pandemic, I'm not running out of projects!

  11. Looks good, Julie! It always feels good to give new life to something old! My current DIY project is painting a wooden silverware chest. It was all beat up, but I'm not really sure I like how I painted it! Oh well....

  13. It looks fabulous, Julie! I love paint...the magic transformer. And I need a plant stand. I wanted to find one at a thrift shop, but they're still not really open. Oh well, I'll keep looking. Enjoy yours! xo

  14. It's amazing what a little paint can do isn't it? I spray painted a bunch of my garden decorations that I was debating about throwing away but they looked great after a bit of new paint. Thanks for sharing with us at Encouraging Hearts and Home. Pinned.
