How Would You . . .

Perhaps it's my love of Creole townhouses that has made me a sucker for scroll work, but I simply can't help myself when confronted with any wrought-iron intricacies. This Plant Stand ($4,500) from mid-19th century France is no exception; its shabby chic, white, wrought-iron scroll work and elegant basketweave details have completely swept me off my feet. Of course the two-tiered plant stand is parfait for Good to Grow month, but I'd love to give it more attention in my home somehow, make it a focal point.

For this latest How Would You, I'd like you to think about how you would fill this belle of the ball. How would you make this eye-catcher a focal point in your home? Would you use it as a plant stand in an unusual place? Hang it from the ceiling? Turn it into a chandelier? Top it with glass as a coffee table? Leave a comment below and let me know where you'd plant this antique stand.

Thanks springfieldrocks! I LOVE your hors d'oeuvre's idea too!!!

nice idea, Kimpossible :) This could be made into a great Hors d'oeuvre table for a garden party, assuming the legs were made long enough to make the lower rack reachable without stooping over. Or, leave it at its current height and put plants on the bottom and Hors d'oeuvre's on the top. Assuming you keep the dirt away from the food ;)

I would remove the top tier and it's legs, get a slab of wood cut for the bottom section and then do a shabby mosaic design with old china pieces for the top and use it as a coffee table. The top tier could possibly be made into a side table to match - but I wouldn't use them in the same space - too matchy matchy lol

i would create a tiered container garden with it outdoors.

It would look fabulous on a porch with some plants on the top. I wouldn't put this in a room because it looks so tall. That is my only gripe.

I'd chock it full of petunias, so it overflowed with soft color.
