A Fixer Upper Junk Garden Plant Stand

 This little plant stand was for sale at my friend's parents garage sale.  Since I helped with the sale, I was able to take a few things free (it was only priced $1) to upcycle.  
Here, I am brushing on a coat of vinegar and steel wool stain.


 The plant stand had been outside a good many years and was not without issues, like rot.

 So I set out to save the little plant stand and junk-ify it too.  I will be using this old hinged hasp to hold the right side together and add some rustic goodness.

 This rusty scrap of metal is from my sister in law and fellow junk gardener, Kris.  I am going to trim the metal with a tin snip and screw it's rusty goodness over some of the rotted areas.


Next to make a sign.  I find that cutting the letters apart works best for me.

I am making the sign for the plant stand with the Kaiser stencil and ivory craft paint.

I sprayed the stencil with a Krylon satin sealer to protect my stencil.

Here is the finished plant stand project.

Starter holes for all screws were drilled in the wood and metal first to prevent cracking.
I love the chippy and rusty goodness.

  7. Good save! If it were mine, I'd tone down the too-new-looking stenciled letters. Maybe scuff them up with some sand paper? Thank you for sharing.
