This poor Bullet planter has been through it all! Including a nearly 40 year hiatus from its original stand. Finding the stand was the easy part, I had had it at the lake for years holding up a large clay pot that we used to ice drinks in... and a few weeks ago I found the fiberglass planter that went with it! Battered an bruised, I waxed the fiberglass to get its sheen back, and I repainted the metal base (five or six years ago I painted it silver) and now...
I think the fresh black paint makes this planter look sharp! The scuff marks lightened up after they were waxed, now I just need to find some kind of plastic 1950's plant to put in it (with a few bricks) and we'll be using it as a door stop in the coral room.
The fresh paint on the planter compliments the black legs and edging on my new coffee and fountain side tables very nicely. I inherited them from my Grandmother Jordan, and what makes them really special is that my Grandpa Jordan made these tables himself back in the early 60's! They have a little ware on them, but look right at home here at the Casablanca.
If only all my projects were this quick and simple, ha ha!
