As I have mentioned before I have been working on some furniture pieces for my new place. The place I had originally planned to move into fell through so I have been staying with family while waiting for my apartment to be ready. I have a few of my furniture pieces almost completed. I have been trying to work on them on weekends when I am back at the family home...my family is ready for them to be out of their way! So here is a small project that I worked on.
My Stepmother gave me this plant stand. I'm not sure if she really wanted to give it to me but I asked real nice and she said I could have it. I always forget to take an actual before picture. The picture below is after I had sanded it. It was painted green and had yellow and rust peeking through.
I liked the rough worn look but knew it wouldn't work with the other pieces I had done. Below you can see come of the metal scroll work. I think it would make a good side table or a plant stand again. We will see.
Don't mind the background, there has been a lot going on at the home where my pieces are stored. i painted it a neutral almond color for now. I would love to paint it a bright primary color but again I'm not sure of where this is going at the moment. I had originally spray painted it an enamel white but it was awful (It was so bad it made me cry and then I had to sand it again...I don't think I will use enamel paint again.)
It looks so much prettier now and the finish feels very nice. Once all the pieces are in place I will take a picture and show it to you all together. I will also show you the other finished pieces soon. I'm bad at taking pictures and realized I'm missing pictures of the finished pieces.
Thanks for stopping by!
