take a stand
TAME THE CLUTTER IN YOUR HOME WITH A NIFTY DIY SIDE TABLE.
Here are two household items you never thought could work together: metal flowerpot stands and old-fashioned enamel washbasins or trays. With some spray paint, the unlikely pairing becomes a practical side table that is a breeze to assemble. We sprayed the basin, tray and stand in darker shades for a grown-up look, but you can opt for versions with old-style flower motifs if you’d prefer a more nostalgic touch. The plant stands come in a wide variety of heights, so you can apply this idea to any corner of your home for various purposes, too.
The plant stands are available at plant nurseries, while the enamel basins and trays can be found at shops selling traditional Chinese wedding supplies.
