This plant stand took a totally different turn from what I originally had planned!! I was thinking bright colors, some retro paper... but not this retro... There's a story here folks so bear with me.
My grandparents have lived in their house for over fifty years and this since my grandfathers passing, lets just say things are changing around the house. Changing by way of remodeling. Although there are mixed feelings with the "new" changes going on, I think I've found a way to keep some of the permanent fixtures around!
I was actually quite thrilled when my aunt said she had something for me from the remodel and handed me the wallpaper from my grandparents accent wall for lord knows how many years. I was almost ecstatic!!
First, I removed those hideous leather circles.
I used them to trace circles onto the back of the wallpaper and cut them out.
I was going to use my mod podge to glue the circles down but this wallpaper was quite thick so I opted for heavy duty spray adhesive instead.
I haven't shown my aunt and grandma the finished product yet but I'm sure they'll be thrilled.
Again, here is what it looked like before:
I have to say even though this isn't what I originally had in mind (not to mention, pretty darn old school) it is very sentimental and I'm glad I can put a piece of history back into the old house~
