Hi there, creative friend! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far.
Today is the 2nd installment of the monthly Trash to Treasure series with a few of my blogging friends – HERE are last month’s projects if you missed them.
One problem (is it really a problem though?) I have when I go thrifting is that I buy random inexpensive pieces and store them away knowing that “one day” I’ll do something cool with them. These are the pieces that I started with for this project (probably a total of $7 spent):
Tip: Use stable pieces – especially for the base and the candlesticks. Also you don’t want the heaviest weight at the top.
I used my awesome E6000 (pretty much the strongest adhesive ever) to glue the pieces together as a DIY tiered display stand.
Here it is glued, but not very pretty yet~
I painted it with a couple coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and added a little clear wax for protection.
NOW it’s looking pretty. 😉
This tiered stand can be used for displaying desserts, fruit, greenery, ornaments at Christmas, etc. It can also be used for storage – as you can tell, I filled it with some of my favorite accessories.
Here’s a before/after collage:
What do you think?
Thanks so much for visiting me for Trash to Treasure Tuesday!
