Tiered plate/cake stand

I've been eyeballing all the tiered plate stand things i've been seeing around blogland and wanted to try one out for myself,, I picked up the two glass candle sticks at a yard sale for 50c each and the other stuff I had already. The top and bottom tier are lids from some tins and the middle one is the top of a sturdy gift box. The very bottom base is part of a candle holder. I just used my glue gun to put them together, cause i'm impatient like that, but really should've used gorilla glue or E6000.. for now its holding its own and will stay the way it is,, later i plan to prime and paint it. I added a simple burlap table runner underneath. I made a runner with drop cloth and some christmas fabric and within an hour had spilled melted candle wax on it,,, thats so not right,, maybe i'll share that one later.

I'm linking up to the Saturday nite special over at Donna's place - Funky Junk Interiors - If you've never nosied around her site,, you are missing out,, she is really creative and loves to make unique and unusual home decor and other things. And the best part is she shares all that info with her readers.. Thanks Donna . So go now to the Saturday Nite Special. and see what everybody else is sharing tonight.

  2. @Cheap Chic Home. I'm glad you used tins! I have a lot of those--I'm going to scope out the sizes. Thanks for the idea!

  3. I came over from Funky Junk linky party. This is a great idea! I'd like to get something like this myself, but I've seen all the ones being made and wouldn't mind going that way myself.

  4. What a unique idea! I have tons of those tin lids scattered everywhere, and I do believe I'll be trying this. Thanks for sharing:o)

  5. Love Love Love this--I have been looking at Thrift Stores for weeks now for the right pieces to make something very similar.
