I have had my eye on this galvanized stand from Pottery Barn for a while. The $69 price tag, not including tax and shipping, kept me from pushing that "place order" button more than once...
I thought there just had to be a way to make a DIY version of this for much much less. A quick online search gave me the idea to use the cake pans and candlesticks. I already had most of these items on hand. This is what I used.
I glued the candlesticks to the pans and let them sit overnight. I then spray painted them with silver metallic paint. I am so happy with how it came out! Here is how it looked before I got started filling it up with fun stuff.
There are so many uses for a stand like this. For now, mine is sitting on our island holding some spice jars, nesting measuring cups, tea bags and kitchen twine.
*Note: Spray paint is typically not food safe. Therefore, I put all food items in food safe bowls before putting on this stand. No food should come in direct contact with the spray painted surface.*
My Cost Breakdown:
10" cake pan-$5 with coupon from AC Moore
Silver Metallic spray paint-$5.99
Items I already had were the other 2 cake pans and candlesticks. I used E600 glue which I already had on hand.
