I have wanted a birdcage stand for a while so when my brother found this one for me I was very pleased. I was sure I knew what I was going to do with it; use it as a plant stand on the back deck. First it needed a coat of black paint to match the outdoor table and chairs.
I does make a nice fern stand...but then I got another idea, one I think I like even better.
Using it to hold a chalkboard. So I made a new chalkboard to fit it.
Chalkboards are so much fun and I can think of all sorts of messages to put on this one.
Of course the fern looks nice too, so I will probably change them out...which reminds me, somewhere in the barn there is an antique birdcage and I saw this one planted with succulents on Pinterest. What could be more fitting and this is truly lovely.
Who would think there would be so many options for a old birdcage stand.
It seems that I haven't posted for a long time. I have been finishing up the drapes, building a little rock retaining wall, and trying to solve computer and telephone problems. Sometimes life seems to get in the way of blogging.
Have a happy day!
