Bonus blog post for this week!
Anywho, I’ve always wanted a pretty cake stand. I just think they’re . . . . pretty. But it’s one of those things that I can’t get myself to spend money on. So I finally decided to make my own. I took some inspiration from this pin (photo) on Pinterest.
I wanted something with a “vintage” type feel so I paid a visit to my favorite local thrift shop. I was drawn to their “silvery” section in the home department.
I didn’t want to walk out of there spending more than $10. Luckily I found just what I was looking for. They were having a blue tag sale and one of the items I chose was half off. (Phew)
So instead of a cake stand, looks like my finished project will be more of a vintage silver pedestal bowl.
All I had to do was glue the candle stick to the bowl. It took no time at all. Writing this post took (is taking) longer . . . much longer than my little pinterest challenge. I’ll just let the pics do the talking. I’ll hush for now:
And the finished silver vintage pedestal bowl:
I’ll have fun filling the bowl for holidays too. Maybe some eggs for Easter. Shots of tequila for Cinco de Mayo. Ornaments or holiday cards around Christmas time. . . etc.
That was fun!
See you next week,
