Repurposed Plant Stand and Updated Patio Furniture

3 Materials
30 Minutes
Update a plant stand and turn it into a side table. You can use these steps to update a plant stand, and even your patio furniture.

First I washed the plant stand to clean off any dirt that was on it.

Then I scrubbed it with a Steel Wool Pad (mine came from the Dollar Tree) to remove any loose paint and rust.

After all the water had dried, I used Rustoleum Metallic Brilliant Metal Finish to paint the stand.

I let the paint dry 24 hours.

I found a glass cutting board at the Dollar Tree and knew it would fit perfect in the plant stand.

This is the top, and I'll probably buy a second cutting board for the bottom shelf.

Last fall, I refurbished all my yard furniture. Some of it was green, some of it was black, paint was chipping and places were starting to rust. I did all of these steps and am very pleased with the way it turned out. This picture is recent and all the furniture made it through the winter just fine.

I noticed that this poor rocker on the bottom left corner didn't have a table space to put a beverage or snack. That is when I remembered I had the plant stand.

Here is more of the furniture I fixed up last fall. The table was green, & chairs were black. Now they all match.

I'm looking forward to sitting here during all of these warm days ahead.

    I always enjoy watching your videos because you have really cool ideas but I never see a subscribe button and just run across you by chance when I'm reading my hometalk emails. On the above video you mentioned that your next video would be about rocks which I don't want to miss because I just started painting rocks and I'm always looking for new ideas. How can I subscribe?
