Étagère.

I am not completely sure how to pronounce this word, but I do admire these little tiered shelves whenever I see them in design magazines and catalogs.  Unfortunately, the price tags tend to be a little less desirable, so I decided to make my own.

I bought this plant stand at a yard sale for $5.

The white paint was okay, but one of the glass shelves was broken.

I decided it was the perfect opportunity to give it an upgrade.

With the purchase of three marble floor tiles from Lowes and a generous coat of black spray paint, I was able to transform a mundane plant stand into my very own étagère.
