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.
I painted with with Ink Waverly Chalk Paint, and I added 2 circle glass cutting boards from Dollar Tree to the tops to protect them.
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.

You did a great job transforming your side tables to a different look. They’re so adorable. I have a lot of plants in my house and my plant stands aren’t quite so cute. 🙂
Thank you so much Lisa, you are so very sweet.

What darling tables! I would have grabbed them too. You did a beautiful job updating them. Great job, thanks for sharing. ?
Thank you so much Naomie – love the doors, that was the big pull 🙂

You might want to stare at the tables and re-think them. They look out of proportion to me. The faux door part is too long for the table top. I think the flat bottom is out of place. The whole table would look better if you cut the flat board off the bottom, and perhaps cut an inch or two off the legs. That’s just my opinion and you know what they say about that!!! I do like the colors on your upcycled tables. When they were white, I thought the top was too large as well. As long as you’re happy…………
Thank you for sharing your thoughts Barbara. The door is actually a real door so I cannot change that. We added the flat bottom because it was unstable.

That a great makeover, looks great.
Thank you very much Anita
Plant stand makeover #2 came out very nicely! Very cool about creating wood-grain patterns with the handle of your paint brush. Thanks for linking up with Creative Compulsions!
Thank you so very much Michelle 🙂

I love that you added a base for stability–was just thinking the “befores” looked like they could topple over, a problem with many plant stands. Gorgeous! #SeniSal
Thank you so very much Jean
