The minute I got home, I sanded it down ready to be painted. And that's how it has stayed. It even made the move from our last apartment to our first home - I refused to give up on my little project.
I'm trying hard to use up the paint and craft supplies I already have. I hunted around in the garage and found a tester from when we were deciding on the living room wall colour. It's just one shade lighter than the colour we finally settled on (Behr, Opal Silk).
I gave the plant stand a quick 2 coats. I wanted to add a little detail, so used a gold paint pen to mark a single chevron.
I'm contemplating turning it into a little table - maybe with a frosted glass top? Maybe!
