Free to Fabulous

While picking up a Craigslist purchase (watch for this AMAZING transformation coming up) the owner said to take whatever I wanted from her house- after two yard sales and several posts on Craigslist she was ready to get rid of everything. Of course I obliged! I chose this little treasure and a small night stand. She was baffled that out of everything I would pick this (pardon my language) "fugly" plant stand. Little did she know that I had big plans for it as soon as our eyes met.

I had been looking every where for a cute little shelf for my baby girl's room and couldn't find anything whimsical enough. Sometimes you just have to improvise! All it took was a coat of primer, a coat of glossy brown spray paint and three darling circle covers on the glass rounds to turn it into this:


Once again...proof that ANYTHING can be beautified with a little imagination and some elbow grease :)

P.S. Notice the clock displayed on top from my Love of Literature post and tutorial.

  4. Wow that is WAY creative. :) I myself was thinking, "She could choose anything from the lady's house and she chooses that metal piece of junk?" Well I stand corrected, that is AWESOME.

    I am now officially on the lookout for a plant stand. Deseret Industries, here I come!
