Purple Painted Plant Stand

I’d like to start by saying that I am a creature of habit.  I find something that I like and I stick with it, which is why I stick with the same paint brand that I know and love; Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint. But I also attended a DIY blogger conference recently in Atlanta and received many goodies from sponsors. A few of the goodies were paint samples, so I’m trying one of the samples on my plant stand.   I would also like to add that I will never experiment on a customers piece, but I have no issue experimenting on my own. Reason being I can always fix my own if needed. That being said, I am trying this chalky paint be Deco Art in a pretty purple eggplant color.

The Before

I scooped this simple plant stand up while in the Catskills a week ago and wasn’t sure what I would use it for. Painted Plant Stand by Just the Woods

Then I remembered my gorgeous floral arrangement that I use for staging. This stand pairs perfectly with my floral arrangement, but it needs paint. Painted Plant Stand by Just the Woods

We are also starting to plan the revamping of our living room and have agreed on a purple sofa. Would you believe hubby actually agreed to this? These purple and cream flowers are so pretty, I want to be able to keep this floral arrangement in the living room once it’s complete, so I decided to paint the plant stand in a purple eggplant color. Deco Art Chalk Paint Test

I was so nervous to try a paint other than the one I normally use, weird I know.  It may sound crazy but I actually considered mixing my own purple eggplant paint, but then thought that I need to try some of these products in my swag bag of gifts.

The Process

The little plant stand was slightly wobbly up top. To fix the wobbles I added a bit of wood glue with my trusty syringe and whacked it in place with my mallet.

The little table with then hand painted in this very pretty purple and distressed around the edges.  Lastly, it was sealed for protection.

The Result

I am very happy with the end result of my painted plant stand.
