DIY 3 Tiered Kitchen Stand

DIY 3 tiered kitchen stand tutorial from www.goldenboysandme.com

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.

  1. Be careful about putting any food items in there, typically spray paint is not food-safe even after curing.

    1. Thanks for your concern, Jenna. I place any food on this stand in food safe bowls, but I did make a note of it on my post in case there is anyone that doesn't know spray paint isn't food safe. Thanks again and have a great day!

    2. Awesome, thanks for adding the note! It's a great project! I've just seen a lot of spray painted cake stands lately and worry about people trying to serve things directly on it.

  6. This is darling!! I love this… I have such limited countertop space that I always am trying to think of a cute way to keep things at hand.. I may have to try this… I am going to be looking for a few cake pans at garage sales this summer!! SO cute!

  7. Oh so cute! I wonder if sealing the spray paint would make it a more friendly kitchen item? Also, I have to say - I think it looked super cute before you painted it, so not painting it would be a good food-safe option, I would think. ;-)
