I bought these plant stands at a garage sale. I had originally painted them but it was time to update them again to match some decor in my home. I updated these Hobby Lobby plant stands into side tables.
Here are the original plant stands.
I cleaned them up by wiping them down.
Original upcycle – I had added some bases I found at Hobby Lobby for stability.
We used them this way for several years.
I have a new need for them, so I’m updating these Hobby Lobby plant stands.
I wanted these to match some updated furniture I had made in my bedroom and this would make a great lamp stand.
I taped the edges with painters tape, and I painted the door with Apple Barrel Burnt Umber paint.
Before the paint had time to dry, I flipped over the paint brush and began dragging it through the paint to create wood grain lines so that it would match my other 2 tone furniture in my room.
I painted the knob with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color silver so that it would match the stainless handles on my other furniture.
I removed the painters tape and let the piece dry completely.
Our lamp fits on it perfectly and it blends in nicely to our new furniture.
