How to Make a Two Tiered Stand Out of Thrift Store Items

4 Materials
1 Hour

Ever since I began work on the refresh of the master floor of my house I’ve been considering something different for on my master bathroom sink. My little tooth brush holder had seen better days and then I saw this lovely project by Chas (one of my To Grandma’s house we go link party gals) and thought: I can make a two tiered stand for my master bathroom!

A trip to my local thrift store and I spent $3.75 on a couple of plates and a candle holder. At walmart I picked up some gloss white rustoleum spray paint and Gorilla glue.I prepped the glass by washing it thoroughly in vinegar and water and then I lightly sanded all of the surfaces with a really fine grit sand paper.
From there I washed them again, thoroughly dried them and then glued them together. I let them dry for 24 hours before spray painting the entire two tiered stand.This was another idea I got from another of the awesome bloggers I’m friends with. Michele over at Our Crafty Mom did a tutorial about how to make  Faux Hobnail Milk Glass for our  milk glass project through the Farmhouse Hens Decorate group I’m a part of.

So I totally went for it with the white spray paint. I was really cautious to avoid drips so I did several light coats.

(A note about that spray paint. RustOleum American Accents Ultra Cover Gloss White. To be honest I did NOT expect any spray paint to do that good of a job here. Let’s be real: I painted glass so I was expecting an end result I would need to be careful with. However, to my surprise, this actually covered really well! Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, Rustoleum makes very serious paint, however this stuff covered so well it actually passed my fingernail scratch test. I’m really impressed!)

The unique rim on top gave me a perk I never even considered, it makes a great jewelry hanger!All in I think it looks lovely on top of the buffet I converted into a vanity and beside my vessel sink.

    Did you have trouble using the gorilla glue? My experience with it is that is bubbles(?) up/ expands... and leaves a visible glue line?
