DIY 3-Tier Stand

Who knew

that this pile of 


could turn out

to be a

fun and useful

3-tier stand!

I saw these made by Angie at Knick of Time and knew that I loved them so much, that I would try my hand at making one. Sure enough, it was an easy and fun project. If you don't want to make one, just watch for them on Knick of Time's Etsy account. Angie sells a lot of these.
I went to garage sales and picked up old metal cake pans and wooden candle stands for pennies.
After selecting my Junk and detaching the base from one wooden candle stand, I painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
I attached the wooden candle base through the cake pan and into the first candle stand with a long screw from the bottom. This allows the lowest cake pan to be raised and gives it a bit of grandeur.
For the middle section, I used a two-ended threaded screw, mostly used for curtain rod finials. By using this kind of screw, I was able to connect the lower wooden candle stand, the middle cake pan and the upper wooden dowel.
For the last cake pan (which is the top pan), I just used a screw in the middle of the pan down into the wooden dowel. This was so much fun and will be so useful especially during the holiday's that I am going to make another one.
I have a square cake pan in two sizes so it will be smaller but oh so cute!

  1. I am in love with this. I picked up three square cake pans a few weeks ago at a thrift store...I wonder if square ones would work too? We would love for you to join us at Party in Your PJs, I am sure our party goers will love this too.

  2. Yours turned out wonderful, Terry! You better watch out - they are addictive! I have lost count of how many my husband and I have made.

  3. This is such a great project! Pinning it!! Can't wait to try it myself :)
