This before & after project is a great example of how a good imagination is often the key to a great makeover. Kind of makes me feel better about all that daydreaming I did during algebra class.

This makeover was featured on Sunset, and I love that this plant stand wound up costing $3.19, the cost of the Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch spray paint in Sun Yellow. If you needed to buy a pot, the project would cost a bit more, but still far less than a wrought iron planter. It's also cool to see how quickly something rundown can be repurposed into an effective piece by popping out a cushion and sprucing up the paint.

Check out more about this project and other DIY salvage makeovers at Sunset.
