This started out as a treat stand, but since I didn't use food-safe paint or adhesive, I decided it probably wouldn't be a good idea to serve food from it. In the end, I decided it would make a cute jewelry tray for my mom. For Mother's Day, ya know? This is just made from some melamine plates I picked up at Target and a brass candlestick from Goodwill. Also, a drawer knob from Lowe's. All I did was paint the candlestick cream and then sprayed some lacquer on it to keep the paint from chipping off. I drilled a hole into the top plate and attached the drawer knob. Then I glued the two plates to the candlestick. Ain't she purty??
After I made the first one, I wanted to make more. Because, you know Target has some CUTE plates. I got some more brass candlesticks at Goodwill (they ALWAYS have plenty) and some more plates from Target. This time, I painted the candlesticks white and omitted the knob. I decided to make one of them a three-tier. It's my favorite!! One of these is for my daughter's bedroom and the other for her bathroom.
I'm almost positive that I saw this (as a cake-stand) on another blog, but I can't remember which one. If anyone knows, hit me up and I'll link it.
