You've probably seen this type of project on many other blogs but here's my take on it. Its a cakestand made using a plate and candlestick holder from the thrift shop.
I picked a pink gloss paint that would work on both ceramic (the plates) and glass (the candlestick holders). After painting the candlestick holder and just the underside of the plate, I used a two-part epoxy to glue them together.
Then I picked up the dried cakestands... and promptly hit one of them against our granite countertop, causing the glass base to shatter :( Guess I'll just have to go thrifting again and find another candlestick holder :)
Don't worry, I put the butter tart out of its misery right after I took this photo :)
Have you made one of these thrifted cakestands? If I had the room to store them, I'd make lots more of all different sizes. You could even use teacup plates to make individual cupcake plates.
