Goodwill Plant Stand Makeover

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday and Today's Thrifty Treasures on Huckleberry Prairie!

This week I am sharing a plant stand find and makeover! I found the heart shaped plant stand at the Goodwill this weekend. They were having a 50% off the entire store sale! Guess how much I purchased this for. Go ahead, guess!




$2.50!!
What a bargain! Ha! ;)

The second I saw it, I knew it just HAD to be painted red. ;)

This red. ;)
The plant stand is enjoying being bathed in it's first coat of red paint...

And here it is after another coat and a little sanding:
I wanted to shabby it up a bit... but wanted the dark color to pop through (hence, not priming it first).

I made a little floral arrangement to pretty up the plant stand...

Started with a clear vase. Added a little bit of fun potpourri.

And added some red, green and wood to the arrangement. Of course it isn't complete without and red and white gingham bow (my favorite).


Not bad for $2.50 and a little red love. :)

For more fabulous makeovers... make sure to check out Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
