Thrifting begets thrifting. It's a slippery slope.
Are you ever thrifting and see something you HAVE to have and you don't really know what you would do with it but you love it anyways? Me too.
Do you usually leave those things so as not to become a hoarder? Me too. Usually...
This time, though, I didn't. You see, I got this stool with the awesome hairpin legs (which I still need to recover) so when I saw this little stand thingy with similar legs I HAD to get it. The fact that Keith thought it was a fondue pot stand was completely irrelevant because I would get really clever and make it into something else: a plant stand.
To make this transformation happen I had to do a bit more thrifting... I bought a vintage bowl to act as the planter and a sweet little non-vintage succulent.
1_ Put some gravel in the bottom for good measure.
2_ Pop in the plant, surround it with dirt and give it a little drink.
3_ Place the bowl planter in the stand and admire.
The entire set up cost about $6.
