Making a Cupcake Stand From an Old Table

I had this 3 tiered stand left over from a shop I used to own and I had no use for it so it sat in my basement for the longest time. One day I was rummaging around down there when I saw the little stand and a light bulb went off. I didn't have to use it as one piece, what if I took it apart? So out came the hammer.
As I separated the pieces, I knew that I could use the bottom piece as a tray (future project and post) and the upper two pieces as a cupcake or dessert stand. Here is the top before...
I used homemade chalk paint made with plaster of Paris which helped give it a softer look. The piece had some digs and scratches on it from getting moved around so many times so it needed a little prep work. It got some spackle and some glue and it was ready to go.
I added some bun feet to the bottom and there she is.. all ready for cupcakes or other desserts.
