Metallic Plant Stand & Branch

I have been a metallic painting maniac! I am always on the hunt for plant stands and they are so expensive, even at places like Target so I was over the moon when I found a simple style at Goodwill for $3. I initially was going to paint it white but thought a metallic copper would contrast well with green. I picked up Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray in Copper and managed to paint everything in sight, including tree branches.

To do this:
Find a plant stand you like. If you aren’t able to find one secondhand, check out this great plant stand.
Spray a couple coats of metallic spray paint and let it dry overnight. Here’s what the plant stand looked like before:

To do the painted branch, find a branch with interesting texture and shape. I  used a recycled jug and removed the label with Goo Gone. It looks great on a mantel!
