I purchased this little black metal plant stand at a rummage sale two weeks ago.
I could have spray painted the little stand but instead, I brushed on Dutch Boy Chalky Finish Paint in Antiquated White. Once dry I opted not to distress the stand and sealed it with Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating Aerosol Spray
I could have just added my flower pots at this point but instead I took a scrap of my cedar fence picket and stained it with steel wool and vinegar. Next I took a Show-Offs Mandala type stencil from a Hobby Lobby store and stenciled on each rectangle with ivory craft paint. The stencil was priced at $2.99. Any small Mandala style stencil would work.
I have become obsessed with this type of stencil design. I sealed my wood rectangles with Krylon spray as well.
Not ready to add real plants yet here in northern Minnesota but I'm thinking this piece will get a spot on my covered patio.
I love this corrugated zinc type pot. I have several in several sizes.
I love it white much better than black!
