My DIY Bread Pan Tin Caddy

6 Materials
2 Hours

Okay, you're gonna love this project. I put together my own version of a tin tiered tray, something that you'd probably see at Hobby Lobby or Pottery Barn. I used some dollar store trays, both round and rectangle work! It only took minimal effort and cost to create something beautiful and stylish!

Bread Pans

Gather Your Materials

  • 4 pans (you can find them at the Dollar Tree)
  • A 2x2 piece of wood cut into 2 7" pieces
  • One dowel screw
  • A finial (I found mine at Lowe's)
  • Drill
  • Spray paint
2x2 Wood

Dowel Screws


Drill Holes and Attach to Poles

Drill Holes

First drill holes in the center of all 4 pans, then drill pilots in the center of the wood poles. Then, attach the tins to the poles, with the trays face upward. The last pan flip upside down as your base. Then add the dowel screw to the top of the wood and add the next pan, and finally the finial.



Then choose a spray paint, I used Rust-oleum Hammered Antique Pewter, and spray the whole tray!

This one will be used in my bathroom! You can really use them for anything.

I made 2 of them, and the whole project cost me only $20! Hope you like it, and give it a try.

      Can you add a lazy Susan track on the bottom? How much weight do you think it might support if I used it for a purpose, ex. as a spice rack?

      I can let anything take up counter space unless it's useful. So a spice rack or liquid condiments, like Worcestershire Sauce, Soy Sauce, etc?

    I like the idea, if it's sturdy enough to serve a useful purpose. I could definitely use it for something non decorative. Our kitchen has to be strictly utilitarian, or

    my Hubs will flip. Decorations have to be cleaned. Not in his job description!
