Polka dot plant stand!

Okay,
get a cheap plant stand ($4)
Paint and mildly distress
(I distress because I have children, and it's bound to happen anyway)


 
Remember this stuff?
I got a ton of computer paper at a yard sale for the
kids to color on...and thought I would 
use these streamers as a stencil!
{in theory, you don't really need a stencil for polka dots...
but I felt like it was the safer way to go}


Cover and tape strategically...not to cover any dots.

Brush paint them in...if it goes on too thick, it makes a mound, so watch it!

Peel away paper while still "tacky" and set out to dry!

Then I sanded down the top lightly, sprayed it with clear coat and ta da!

I didn't overstage this one so you could see the top!
:)
Totally hooked on this color!

What a great idea! I remember that kind of computer paper, but I would never have thought to save those edges. I love the polka dots.
