I found this tired little plant stand for $2. I wanted to do something to jazz it up a little bit and make it more funky. I had a bunch of jars laying around so this is how it went down:
After sanding it back lightly, I used painters tape to create a herringbone print so that some of the original wood would still be visible and used a subtle yellowy mustard tone that I made up from acrylic paints that I already had.
After that I painted the tops of the the jars with some complimentary colours and wrapped the jars with twine to finish them off. Then I added some great low maintenance plants and voila!
Happy with how this one turned out :)
