One Shabby Plant Stand

I started out wondering what to do with this plant stand - quite basic, couldn't really put on some decal as it should have a nice big plant on top...

Fifi wasn't too sure either.

Anyway - off to work starting with lightening things up, two coats of Old White paint later.  I like the total white-out look.

Then I decided to add some touches of Duck Egg Blue.

And then got at it with the sandpaper!  That's when I really started to see that this could be a really lovely bit of shabby chic!

After adding more clear wax to seal - I am really pleased with it - lovely plant stand!
