DIY Potting Table Makeover

Are you ready for another furniture makeover? Good, because I’ve got one for you! This is a DIY potting table makeover. A couple of years ago my parents sent here potting table home with me. They used if for years in various places outside, but it had taken a beating from being exposed to the weather. When I brought it home, I placed it on our covered and screened in back deck. It had been sitting there untouched until a couple of weeks ago.

My dad had sanded and stained it a couple of times, but I felt like it was time to go a different route. I had some leftover furniture paint from Lowe’s and decided to use it. Right now, I am really liking the look of black and brown together. I used the black paint on this dresser. It gives a really nice finish, so I decided to use it on the potting table.

What do you think about the after? I love how it turned out! It looks great against the brick and we will be cleaning and staining the deck soon. Once I got it painted, I knew I wanted to fill it with green plants. I love how green pops against black!

This adorable little frog came from the Dollar Tree and he might be my favorite item on the potting table. He adds a little whimsy and I love that. It’s important to have fun when decorating.

The pot you see here came from Goodwill and the plant came from Walmart. They look great together. The flower plate came from Dollar Tree and the other vase came from Goodwill. You cannot go wrong with inexpensive decor for your home!

Walmart doesn’t disappoint when it comes to cute decor for the patio. That is where this adorable propagation station came from. I am excited to see the roots sprout and I love the character it adds to the potting table and the porch.

There was even plenty of room on the bottom shelf to add more plants and more decor. All of the items you see here, I already had. I love pulling things out of storage and from other areas of our home to reuse and repurpose. It definitely helps to stay on budget as well!

Well, that was a fun project! Now it is time to sit back and enjoy the deck and take care of the plants. Stay tuned for more furniture makeovers coming very soon! And don’t forget, you can see more projects at Heather Loves Home on Facebook and Instagram.
