Wire Plant Stand Makeover

My mini painting project is complete! I've been waiting for a nice afternoon to do another outside spray painting project, and Sunday proved to be the perfect day. I present to you, my new and improved wire plant stand!


Here's how it went down. After Trent got home from work, we finally got around to painting this old wire plant stand that had been sitting around at our house being all but useful:
The plant stand - BEFORE
I have no idea where this thing came from (I think it was Trent's parents'), but it was old, rusty, chipped, and in need of some love. I could just see the potential in this little guy and wanted to add it to my summer porch decor. Enter Mr. Valspar in this pretty turquoise color:


I stood at a safe distance while Trent sprayed the stand with the all-in-one primer and paint. It took about two coats total, with one additional coat on the underside. In the end, there was even more paint left in the spray can - so it only took one can to complete. (Thank God 'cause I only had one anyway!)

Here it is after just one coat (It took two coats total to make sure it got full coverage and was extra shiny):

Once it was all dry, I added it to my porch! And couldn't be happier.

It was a super easy afternoon project. Now I have something else pretty to look at on the porch. Along with all of these beautiful blooming flowers:



Thank you, days of nonstop rain! Just makes for less things I have to water. :)
