Faux Marble Plant Stand

I snagged a wrought iron stand for $2.00 at a yard sale. The seller broke the glass and didn't want to replace it. I brought it home and painted it gold. I then added a piece of wood inside and covered it with marble contact paper
Found this for $.00
Used Krylon Maxx gold spray paint
cut a piece of wood and covered with faux marble contact paper
insert on top
perfect use for the plant stand

Suggested materials:

  • Krylonn Maxx Gold Spray Paint
  • Marble contact paper
  • Wood

      As durable as any contact paper, it’s paper with a thin plastic coating to make it pliable.

    What a great idea. What is the name of the plant in the picture? Thank you.

      As an aside, beware of that gorgeous pencil cactus, as it is poisonous to pets. I had been thinking of getting one, but decided against it because we have a Shih Tzu who loves to eat plants, and we have four itty, bitty kittens we're currently fostering (they were two weeks old when we got them), and I don't know what their personalities will be once they're a bit older before we can begin to rehome them. I sure did want one, though. :(

    Did you refinish the cupboard in the corner? Sanding and metallic spray paint?
