A couple of years ago when the house across from ours was being auctioned off the family was going to throw these plant stands away. No one was interested in them. I told them if they were going to discard them I would take them. I brought them home and tucked them away in our barn. I had nearly forgotten about them until a few weeks ago.
I needed tables for my plants in my sunroom that I am still decorating! (Back issues have really slowed me down) They were in really bad shape and too rusty for even my taste. (I wish I had pics before my husband began cleaning them up!) There was wicker around the top that had completely rotted away. Sadly it had to all be torn away. I love wicker but there was no way to save it :( I bought Rustoleum spray paint and my husband sanded and painted them. for me.
We had plexi-glass cut to fit in the areas where the plants are perched instead of glass just in case a "furbaby" knocked one over ... don't want anyone hurt.
The plant stands have lots of detail in the ironwork and lots of character. And better yet they have a new home and I adore them in my sunroom.
I hope to have my room finished soon. I am making new covers for chairs and pillows. Lots of color in this happy room! I love sitting in it.
Thanks for visiting!
