I used the same technique on some other items, but I really wanted to give this a try on a cake stand. I really love how it looks, and so I decided to share the process with y'all! To see how I used this technique on a dollar store pot, click here!
How to Make a Dollar Store Rusty Cake Stand
First, I put the cake stand together. I made it using a candlestick and a tray glued together using E6000.
Then, I spray painted the whole cake stand using this hammered metal finish.
Then I sprinkled cinnamon- yes cinnamon! All over the tray!
I then sprayed some polycrylic over the cinnamon to finish it up.
Then, I went over the tray using black paint with a dry brush just to add that extra detailed touch.
And that's it! It looks so chic and I love that rusty weathered look.
It's fun to play around with staging and styling, and I love how I styled this one. If you love unique painting techniques head on over to my most recent tea bag technique! Hope you like it as well!
