Vintage Tiered Stand Makeover

When I shared this vintage tiered stand in this finds of the week post a few weeks ago I said it would be getting a makeover.

It’s been quite sweltering here for a few days,  so I decided if I can’t beat ’em… join ’em.

And to me that means… hot pink, and the hotter the better. 🙂

There’s nothing better for an easy makeover than some good old fashioned spray paint love, and that’s just what this tiered stand got.

I took it out to my handy dandy cardboard spray painting area and did three light coats of a hot pink.

I took it apart to make it easier.

When I brought the stand inside I decided I wanted to use it to store some of my vintage cookie cutters so I looked through my vintage bake ware stashes and found this large bundt cake pan that the centre rod easily fit through.

Finding one to fit the top part of the stand was a little tricky.

Smaller pans have smaller centre holes so I had to cut slits with my metal cutters to make the hole bigger.

Then I just used a flathead screwdriver to push the edges down so the rod would fit through.

Here it is all done.

Now I know not everyone would spay paint this hot pink, but if you’re a girl with hot pink ceiling in your craft room ( I resemble that remark) then this is definitely for you…

and me.

Here it is in my craft room.

I moved my scarf collection into a basket in the bedroom so I could use this large hat box for my cookie cutter collection. Some of which are now stored in my tiered stand.

Now I have all these large jars to organized other stuff.

This was such a quick and easy project.

I just love spray paint!

Have you spray painted anything recently?

Thanks so much to you for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.

  10. I love the pink! I wish my cooky cutter collection fit into a hat box; I probably have about a tote (large) full! Mine are not necessarily vintage as I love making all kinds of holidays cookies. I am always looking for SAFE ways to stack stuff higher and deeper so the tiers are great!

      I hear you on the stacking thing. This tiered stand holds just a small part of my cookie cutter collection. I have a set of 4 hat boxes that hold the rest. One day I’ll use a bunch of them in a giant repurposing project I think. Or I should say I hope. lol.
