Repurposed Plant Stand with Patina Paint

It’s a fun day when I get to start my creative juices flowing with all the fantastic #trashure finds I find during city spring cleanup. One day in particular I was outside spray painting listening to all the junky trucks driving around our neighborhood as they shopped Curb le Chic. It was our quadrant’s turn and I was being a good girl staying home until the last day. My neighbor came over to ask me if I wanted seedling pots he was throwing out. As he was talking I looked at his pile and asked, “Is that a stool in your trash?” He replied, “No, an ash tray”. We walked over together to inspect his loot. Thus begins the story of my repurposed plant stand.
