What I used:
- old plant holder
- metallic black spray paint
- sander block
- plate or surface to be used as table top
- strong glue
Step one: Strip it
I tried to get as much paint off as possible and then sanded it to a smoother surface.
Step two: Sand it
I peeled off the old paint that crumbled easily, then sanded it down with the block.
Step three: Paint it
I used a black spray paint with a metallic finish. I think it makes it look fancy.
Step four: Glue it
I chose Gorilla Glue, but any good glue that bonds metal and plastic should work to secure the plate to the planter.
Step five: Clamp it
I couldn’t actually clamp these so a big bottle or a bunch of books should do the trick. I used a nice heavy bottle of weed killer to act as my “clamp.”
