Rusty Plant Stand Makeover

So after swooning over all of those wonderful finds, I decided to start with something easy. This piece seemed to be calling my name from the moment I pulled it out of that dusty old storage building.

It is a LARGE two tier plant stand that folds for easy storage. There were a couple rusty spots with flaky paint. I used a wire brush and scraper and removed all of those chippy pieces. I decided that this piece would look amazing in a Turquoise color.  I chose Restoleum 2X Ultra Cover in Seaside. I love this paint. It has even coverage, is inexpensive and very easy to use.
This is what I ended up with.........................LOOOOVE!

As soon as the color was finished, I knew exactly where it would go. This deserved to be more than just a plant stand. I remembered seeing these round glass tops at Walmart. 
I purchased two of the glass tops for about $7 each. They were not exactly the same size as the sections in the stand but they would work. I also added Bumpers to the bottom of the glass to keep it from rubbing against the metal.
And Viola! 
I am in the process of putting together our guest room. I have the bedding but no bed. Now I have a table. This is perfect because the colors I chose for the room are gray and turquoise. This piece will make a nice accent table. This piece is pretty big too. SEE........
These are the Twinkies standing next to it. They are seven! I hope you enjoyed this transformation. Stay tuned for more of my "Storage Score Makeovers."

Ciao for now!
