Hey! So, guess what I’m supposed to be doing right now, that I’m avoiding by creating summer-loving printables? Bathing suit shopping for the summer! Yes, the activity that all women dread! It requires an all-out, all-day trying-on session, and usually amounts to one swimsuit that you’ll actually be caught dead in out of the twelve-thousand you try on.  There are so many aspects to consider: is it too revealing, not revealing enough, can I bend over, can I have a taco while eating it, SHOULD I have a taco while eating it? It’s a first world problem, but the struggle is REAL! UGH!

puns to kick off your summer

Instead of doing that fun activity (ha!), let’s figure out where in your home you can hang these sweet summer pun wall-art prints! They’d make for great powder or bathroom wall art or would be soooo cute in a fun-loving gallery wall in any room, and they’re FREE!

Remember I was on a cheesy pun kick last month when I made these Fruit and Veggie Puns Kitchen Art print? Well, I’m still on that kick, but this time I’m going summer on you! The lively colors in these art prints remind me of all the fun in the sun ahead for this summer and have a tiny bit of a Palm Springs vibe.

Tropical Summer Wreath Dollar Store Craft

This fun tropical summer wreath is made from dollar store materials. It’s a cute addition to your summer home decor that’s a cinch to make! 

Summer Wreath

Once the warmth of late spring arrives, I want to spend most of my time outside enjoying the weather, which means the inside of my house tends to take a backseat. Housework has to wait, new DIY projects have to wait, and laundry has to wait! Let’s face it; it’s a good day if everyone who lives in my house gets dinner. But, just because the inside of my house might look less than perfect doesn’t mean the outside has to! For me, that starts with hanging a seasonal wreath – in the case, a tropical summer wreath!

I’ve loved the look of disc wreaths lately, so, that was the first thing to come to mind when it came time for the most recent My Dollar Store Blog Hop. Not only is this project budget-friendly, but you can complete it in an hour – you’ll be back outside in no time at all!

Metal Plant Table Upcycle

An old metal plant table gets a much needed upcycle with a new faux marble table top and a fun, bright paint job! 

plant table make-over

Every day, in between work tasks, I pass this old plant table in the driveway as I walk back and forth to my car for daily mom taxi duties.

plant stand - before

As I pass by, my thought process goes a bit like this:

  1. Crap. I’m going to be late.
  2. Yay! I can’t wait to see my babies OR Ugh. When will these kids be driving? ( It depends on the day.)
  3. What the hell happened to that plant stand? Did it always look like that? It needs some TLC. Stat.
  4. Crap, I’m going to be so late!

… and repeat. Seven times a day.

I’m no stranger to upcycling and furniture DIYs, but in reality, this little plant table is near the bottom of my to-do list. I have many large, unfinished DIY projects and no time. It’s easy to feel defeated. Then, I started thinking – Would completing a small project (i.e., said plant table) make me think differently? The answer is YES! So, we’re upcycling a plant table with a paint intervention and a faux finish top!

How to Upcycle a Metal Plant Table

Because you’re short on time,  here is the abridged tutorial. For full details, please download the plant stand upcycle guide – it’s printable and free. And if you’re going to be upcycling a plant table, show me your “before and afters” – they make me so happy!

 

PLANT TABLE GUIDE BANNER

Remove the top

plant table - remove ruined top

I could’ve pulled the plant table top off with my hands. #callmesupergirl but, to save the screws, I went the old school route of removing the top properly – I know, boring right? If possible, use the make a pattern out of paper for the new top from the old. Put the pattern and screws aside.

Clean, Sand and Paint the Base

plant stand - clean up the base

After an overall sanding, focusing on smoothing any rust spots, paint the base with 2-3 coats of spray paint, including the underside of the plant table.

plant stand - PAINT THE BASE

Cut the New Plant Table Top then Paint

Faux Marble - Paint Table Top

Use the paper pattern you created to trace the new plant table top onto a piece of wood or MDF about 1″ thick, then cut with a power saw. Decide on the finish for your plant table top – I went with a faux marble finish and shared the tutorial for how I did here!

Attach the Top and Love it! 

plant stand - ATTACH THE TOP

Reattach the top using the reserved screws. Put your plant table into place and enjoy the fruits of your labors. You did it!

My to-do list is still long, I’m still a taxi mom, and no doubt, I’ll be late to every pickup, but I’m happy to complete something that brings beauty to my surroundings. Those trips to the car are much more fulfilling!

How about you? What small project can you tackle today that will make you feel accomplished? How can I help? Did you remember to download the free guide for this project? One step is one step – We can do this!
