DIY | Two-Tier Plant Stand

Hey guys!

In today’s post, I’m going to show you how to make a DIY two-tier plant stand. 

Plant Stand

First up, the materials list:

  • 4 pieces of 1×1 wood
  • 2 circular wood pieces
  • 8 L-shaped brackets
  • 8 screws
  • stain
  • paint
  • polyacrylic or polyurethane 

I had some scrap wood laying around and attempted to cut out two circles, however, they came out a little wonky so I headed over to Joann’s and purchased to precut wood pieces, using a 40% off coupon on one of the wood pieces of course. 

Circular wood

Next up, the wood circles were stained in the color dark walnut. Then the wood was sealed with two coats of polyurethane. 

The legs were painted white with chalk paint and sealed with two coats of polyacrylic.

Using my tape measurer I measured three inches down from the top of the wood legs.

DIY Plant StandThe spot was marked with a pen on all four pieces of the wood. To make things easier and ensure they all lined up, the wood was stacked next to each other. Next, the holes were drilled.

For the bottom, I measured seven inches up and repeated the same steps of marking and drilling the holes. 

DIY Plant StandOnce the holes were drilled, the L-shaped brackets were set in place. The tape measurer was used again to make sure everything lined up. 

DIY Plant Stand Time to move on to the wood circles. First measure across to find the center of the circles. Then mark four holes to drill. 

DIY Plant Stand

Now it’s time to put it all together. Just attach your wood circles to the wooden legs using the L-shaped brackets and screws and you’re done!

Here is the finished product, my stand measures at 3 feet tall.

DIY | Home Decor: Set of 3 Pictures

Hello there! 

Today’s post will feature a DIY Home Decor project featuring a set of 3 pictures.

This little set of pictures have been hanging around the house FOREVER!!! One day as I was passing by the wall they currently sit on I thought to myself, ‘hmm, these pictures don’t really match any of my current home decor colors or theme’. 

Set of 3 Pictures

The Before

So after a quick trip to Michael’s to pick up a few supplies, using a coupon of course. 🙂 The set of 3 pictures have been refreshed into these beauties!

Set of 3 Pictures

The After

The first step was spray painting the black frames a nice shiny gold. Next this nicely textured white floral design paper was used. The paper was cut down to size and glued on the cardboard backing that came with the pictures. 

Set of 3 Pictures

The next item used were these self-adhesive cooper/goldish colored gems. The gems were glued to the center of each flower on the paper. Even though they were self-adhesive for added durability a dab of glue was added. 

Also used for added flair were these glitter specks.

Again a little dab of glue and a pair of tweezers were used to add the individual specks of glitter. The glitter specks were placed randomly throughout the paper. 

The final look is sooo different and now properly matches the rest of the theme that makes up the basement. Total project cost under $10 for materials! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Until next time!

DIY | TV Stand Makeover

Hello there,

Today’s post is another furniture makeover, featuring a TV stand makeover. I picked up this TV stand from craigslist for $15.

The black hardware was removed prior to this picture

After a good wipe down, it was time for paint. I used my favorite little inexpensive chalk paint I picked up from Joann’s. The color used for this project is called, White Adirondack.

It took three coats of paint and really to be honest a fourth coat could have been applied to really finish it off. But I was being lazy and didn’t feel like painting on another coat, so three coats it was!

A light sanding was done between each coat and a quick wipe down. After the three coats of paint two coats of polycrylic was applied to seal it up. I used a synethic brush to apply the paint and sealer.

Next up the hardware. A quick coat of metallic gold spray paint was used on the hinges and knobs to breathe new life into them.

Time to put it altogether and see how she looks!

DIY | Planter Makeover

Hey Guys!

I am back with another DIY project. Today’s post will be a planter makeover. This planter was purchased on Craiglist for $10.

Here she is in all her glory! It’s a big plastic planter and when I tell ya it was ugly and needed work, boy I am not lying! In this picture, I’ve already sanded a bit of the rough spots out as best I could.

Next, it was time to measure out the design. I measured 3 inches down from the top and made markings with a pen all the way around.

Then the same step was repeated for the bottom, except this time the measurement was just 1 1/2 inches up from the bottom.

Painter’s tape was added.

Then was time to take this bad boy out to the garage to spray paint it white.

After the paint dried, the old tape came off and new tape went on just below the white paint to line up perfectly with the next color that was going in the middle. Stay with me it’s all going to make sense soon. 🙂

But before the next color went on in the middle, I had to add some paper to protect my beautiful white paint that was just applied.

Now it’s ready for the middle color of paint!

Isn’t she lovely? The gold metallic paint just really makes her pop. Time to remove all the paper.

planter makeoverI actually used the paper to stuff the inside because I didn’t have any planter/floral foam stuff on hand.

Here’s a tip: paint the inside of your planter, I didn’t and kinda wished I had, but I made it work anyway.

Next, I added my moss from the dollar tree (two bags).

All done!
