Pottery Barn Plant Stand Knockoff and Giveaway Reminder

I actually posted this plant stand a few weeks ago, but forgot to show my inspiration, so this is an update of that post.
I finally decided to try a knock off when I found this poor sad little plant stand at a garage sale for $3.
I remembered seeing one very similar to it in last years Pottery Barn catalogue.

Obviously this was a pretty simple paint and distress project, but I am still very happy with how it turned out.

I never distress quite as much as other people do. I think I am just fighting with myself
over the paint job I just worked so hard on. Do you have trouble sanding off
 too much of the paint you just put on your projects, too?

I almost forgot, don't forget the Restyled Sundays party and giveaway is still going on here!
Linking to the following parties:



  1. Cute! I'm convinced white paint fixes everything! I saw a similar stand at a garage sale for $5 and I didn't buy it...I'm still kicking myself and that was almost a year ago! I could have a cute plant stand just like yours...sigh...

    Anyway, stopping by from Type A!

  2. so cute, you did a great job finishing it.

  3. I am a plant lover and your plant stand re-do is wonderful. Love it. I have joined your followers list and invite you to join my followers list; as well,I hope you will grab a blog button. Hugs, Gayle

  4. That is perfect, I love your redo and knock off.

  5. I would distress it more personally.

  6. Your redo looks great! The plain wood finish really looked dated. The distressed creamy finish now is lovely. I personally prefer a bit more heavy distressing but I hear you about it just seeming wrong to paint something up so nicely only to purposely ruin that flawless finish. LOL
