Update A Plant Stand With Paint

Salvaged during a council clean-up, a white plant stand showed the potential to be turned into a standout piece of furniture.

It was given a light sand all over with abrasive paper and painted in Taubmans Blossom.

Stripes on the tabletop were created by masking with tape at even intervals. A copper metallic acrylic paint was applied to the unmasked sections and the rims to accentuate the decorative features.

To protect the surface, it was given a coat of water-based varnish. The chair pictured was another roadside find. The chair was sanded and the back and legs primed, then painted white.
