Have you seen those DIY tiered cake stands popping up everywhere lately?
Well, I have. And I sincerely wanted one.
But, I had no purpose for it. And that means it can,t be mine. No purpose. No love.
But…I needed some additional storage for my odds and ends baking supplies. Hmmm.
I saw a pic on Pinterest and it confirmed my suspicions.
I could use the same concept as the cake tiers, in a better way for me!
The Pinterest pic…
Isn’t she the cutest!
My local antique store has scores of vintage tins for cheap, cheap, cheap!
That was a no-brainer as to where to get my hands on some great tins.
I got these…
In hindsight, the bright Ritz tin wasn’t such a great idea. But…it works.
The key was that the tins were varying sizes, but not too great of a difference.
I also was going to use the black candlestick for the base tier.
I hot glued the candlesticks in between each tin. I actually used the black candlestick INSIDE the Ritz can
as extra height cause that tin is so stinking tall.
It looks great!
Now, if I used candlesticks from the dollar store and saved my tins from other things…the possiblities!
But, a girl can only have so many of these laying around. One in every house…perhaps?
The actual cost:
All 3 tins cost $4.00
The candlesticks cost $8.00
And some gluesticks
I am okay with that. I would pay it again.
P.S. Can I just say that I am still having huge problems with taking decent pictures with my point and shoot.
Even after 3 days of my 10 day series…
Great projects mean nothing without decent pictures of them. The picture on the left I tried out Photoshop 10 with. Its better.Â
