Thrift Store Plant Stand Repurpose

Today’s post is for all of my thrifty friends out there! The one’s who get excited over a great bargain and home decor makeovers. Is that you? It sure is me!

I like to repurpose items and use them for things other than what they were originally intended.  Maybe that’s my thrifty side or maybe my creative side but I find it fun.

I found this cute little iron plant stand for $2. Excellent condition as is but sort of boring.

The very best way to spiff this little plant stand up is of course spray paint.  I was very lucky that between all of the extreme cold and ice there was a day of mild weather.  I took it out back in the woods to paint.  The color I used is a great shade of blue green called Moonlit Surf.  The paint + primer works very well.

The hall bathroom didn’t have a towel holder so the iron plant stand was a great addition to the counter . It adds a bit of Spring in there, especially since the leaves outside the windows have snow on them! This bathroom could use a mini makeover.  I plan to paint the walls and change out the light fixture.  I’m adding it to my DIY Spring to list.  You know, that list that keeps going through all of the seasons.

I thought I should try it on the kitchen table as a centerpiece too.  It would be a great piece to use as a server.  I could add a mason jar or bowl into the plant holder for either utensils or dips.  Lots of options.
