I’ve had my eye on a pretty stand to put right next to the kitchen sink for a little while now.

TJMaxx truly has the best stuff and I was thinking about getting one from there, but decided to make a DIY project out of it instead.

because a.) I love DIY projects and b.) it’s really just a plate with a stand. So after a trip to Dollar Tree I spent only $2 on mine instead of $20.

I got a white plate and a candle stick. All you have to do is superglue them together…and then voila!

Easy as pie. Takes about 10 minutes. Cheap. And just as pretty. My favorite kind of project!

Bonus: Tiered cake stand into a coffee bar holder! I must really have a thing for cake stands lately. I found this cake stand at Hobby Lobby. I like to use materials in different ways, so originally I used it to hold my perfumes, but it quickly became more useful to me as a organization thing for my coffee bar! I’m not sure what to call this obviously. Coffee bar holder? Organizational thing? Either way it’s super versatile and it works great! Plus, this falls under the category “metal”, so if you go to Hobby Lobby at the right time it will be 50% off!
