That Cactus is Lookin' Sharp from Plaster & Disaster

Quirky Cactus Side Table

Plaster & Disaster

We were challenged to make over a mystery thrift store item as part of a competition called “The Mystery Thriftoff” (run by the amazing Lindsey of Better After — http://www.betterafter.net/). When we received a fizzy plastic cactus in the mail as our item, we didn’t know what we would do. Fortunately inspiration struck, and after scraping off all the fuzz, getting creative with a metal pipe and wood plaques from Home Depot, and lots of high gloss white spray paint, we were left with a chic cactus side table.


  • Plastic cactus
  • Two round wood plaques
  • Pipe
  • White spray paint
