Plant Stand Revisited
A year ago I showed this cast iron plant stand we bought at a flea market. We kept it outside on the deck for two summers. It's rusty white paint got more rusty and then too rusty. We decided it needed to be cleaned up and brought inside.
Some sanding and a fresh coat of white spray paint and it looks perfect in the living room holding some of our plants we brought inside.
Isn't this African violet pretty? For some reason I have had bad luck getting them to reflower. But this one came right back after the first blooms faded. I'm going to the garden center and get some more. I hope they have some of those miniature ones I've seen in magazines.
And here is our little Tad, getting bigger and busier everyday. He likes to "read" books himself now. Just jabbers away while turning the pages. A true Marquis, for sure!
