DIY Plant Stand
Thank you Carin for having us back as a Guest Blogger!
Hope everyone has been having a great summer! Today we wanted share this DIY plant stand mini-project. We wanted to do it earlier this summer but life/work has been go go go!
We saved this plant stand from a friend’s curbside a while back. As you can see, it was a 1990’s hunter green, a little dirty, and a little rusty but otherwise in great shape. So we knew we could breathe it back to life again. The notion of “reduce, reuse and recycle” of helping to sustain our environment for the future. It can be used indoors and/or outdoors so we wanted to add a punch of colour to it.
This pretty terra cotta/orange planter bowl caught our eye when Target Canada (we so so miss them!) was closing. Then, we came across the cute bright striped citronella candle. So we got inspiration to spray paint it a soft, calming blue from these two. We knew it would be a fun way to display outdoors through the summer months. We used Krylon Glossy ‘Bahama Sea’ – how fitting for the season!
Now that summer is almost over (sigh!) and ‘back to school’ routine is around the corner, the Fall Mums are out in full force. Annuals out, Fall Mums in. The deep rich orange/red flower pulls the round planter’s colour together for a finished look. What do you think?
Planning another DIY project soon … looking forward to sharing it with you next time!
