Ok so something magical happened. I made something I've always wanted to make using only the items I already had lying around. That's a project with like no risk and all reward. Hey-Oh! Even better, this project also fulfills one of the items on my 2017 Furniture Flip Bucket List. Double Hey-Oh!
So which item is the first I shall be crossing off this year's list?
Why No.3 of course.
The construction of this little guy was relatively simple. All I needed was some round wooden dowels, a dowel kit, some wood glue, and a large ceramic planter. Following along with this handy tutorial, I was able to assemble the four legs and the joining cross section.
I built the stand to fit a ceramic planter I had lying around (with a dead plant carcass inside). For extra stability, I secured the joints with wood glue and strapped the base in place to set.
Once the glue dried, I spray-painted the planter white and stained the legs a warm brown to get that iconic MCM planter look.
Now my plant children have a place of honor to reside.
Despite the glue, he's still not the sturdiest but I am proud I built him nonetheless. And I still plan to improve my carpentry skills and build something SUPER solid to fulfill item No.7 this year.
But of course in the spirit of the upcoming Oscar's, let's play a little round of
WHO WORE IT BEST?
