After: plant stand
Thomas J. Story

After: plant stand

How we did it: After removing the seat and sanding the frame, we set out to find the perfect pot to fit. Next, we took the frame outside, placed it on newspaper, and applied a layer of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch spray paint in Sun Yellow ($3.19; rustoleum.com for stores). After letting it dry, we applied a second coat and waited 24 hours before inserting the pot.

Time: 2 hours (30 minutes each for prep and painting, plus 1 hour to dry between coats)

Cost: $3.19 for spray paint, plus pot
