Cake Stand, Pedestal Stand
I love using things I have around the house to make farmhouse shabby chic industrial items. So lets make a multi-use cake stand. I grabbed a pizza pan at the dollar store and a old leg I found on a couch someone was throwing out. I always grab this kind of stuff when I see it. I love to recycle free items! Trash to treasures.
What you'll need is sandpaper, wood leg (you could also use a candle stick also) Glue, Paint, pencil, and a Pizza pan could use one from dollar store, an old one from a thrift store, or one laying around the house
After you have all the items you'll need to get started you'll need to find the center point. I took a piece of paper and made a straight vertical template to trace with my pencil.
Then laid it horizontal and made another line. Where the lines crossed in the middle is the center point. I then took my sand paper and roughed up the pan in the area where I am going to glue the leg on.
I used E 6000 to glue the wood leg to the metal pizza pan bottom center point.
I then let it sit upside down for 24 hours. This ensured that the glue was fully dry so it doesn't slip off.
I then taped off the leg because I decided I liked the metal pan look and didn't want to paint the whole tray. However, depending on your house you could if you wanted to.
After I painted the leg and let it fully dry, I then used my sand paper and distressed it. This gave it a rustic shabby chic look which works in my house. You could leave it un-sanded depending on your home.
Here you'll see how I distressed it I liked it so I left it like this without painting the tray.
Its done its a fast and easy project. I put a plant and a decorative ball with this cute love arrow I picked up at a local craft fair. I set it on my sideboard but the places and uses are endless from a soap holder to a party cupcake holder and more.
The metal and distressed shabby chic white pops on my console table. I love how it turned out. Who would of thought a pizza tray could look so good!
