In Friday’s post here I showed you a set of vintage enamel bowls that I had recently thrifted.
I’m so excited to show you how I used them to make a tiered stand.
Here’s the first dry fit. You can see some of the fabulous crazing on the mustard coloured bowl in this pic.
I didn’t like the round disk pieces and upon close inspection I discovered that the candlesticks came apart so I happily removed them (saving them for another use some day)… and did a second dry fit.
Much better I think.
I spray painted the candlesticks with Krylon white primer and paint combination, and glued the first one inside the largest bowl being used as the bottom.
I used Marine Goop adhesive for this project.
Then I glued the next bowl on top and the second candlestick inside that.
I secured them with painter’s tape so they wouldn’t move. The bowl on the top looks bigger than the one on the bottom in this pic, but that’s an illusion… it is smaller.
And then the top bowl was glued on.
My finished tiered stand is about 15″ tall and right now it’s holding some lace bits and other decorative bobs that I use when prettying up the packages of items that I sell.
I’ll be making more versions of these for sure. It was so easy, and the possibilities are endless.
Thanks so much for reading!
Have a great day!
