Back in the fall my father helped an elderly lady from his church doing some major purging at her home. When he was done he had managed to drag home an assortment of junk and jewels. I spent a day helping him sort and clean his garage and was rewarded with some jewels to bring home with me. One of those was this old plant stand.

|So much better, I love the chippy distressing.|
I have been using it as a plant stand but this week we got a new kitchen set and I lost the top of the old china hutch as a display area. My new china hutch has an arched top so no way to display on it. I had made this cutie patootie rooster years ago and he has been perched on top of the china hutch ever since.
Now I was in a quandary since Mr. Rooster is too tall to go above my cabinets and too tall to sit on the counters without blocking the cabinets and too big to use on my island. Think, think, think....ah ha...just before I was going to banish Mr. Rooster to the attic for a while it hit me....he would be perfect on my plant stand!
Although I loved it as a plant stand for my asparagus fern I like this much better. I love it when you bring home junk and end up with a jewel....and Mr. Rooster is pretty darn happy with his new roost! Thanks for stopping by.
