Cate’s thrift store find was certainly interesting, if a little clunky. After pulling out the pieces she needed for another project, Cate got inventive and the results are pretty charming!

From Cate:

I grabbed this quirky (and rather large) mid-century modern table lamp from my local thrift store with plans to harvest the brass for another lighting project. After taking the whole thing apart, I was left with some beautiful turned-wood pieces that I couldn’t let go to waste. I screwed the leg pieces into an old round wooden tray and ended up with a petite and unique plant stand that now graces the sunny corner in our living room!

Thank you, Cate! You can see more on Cate’s blog StyleMutt Home
