This is an original idea, but I must say it's been derived from ideas like this DIY serving platter (by fellow blogger Jamie Cooks it Up) that I found through Pinterest.
I love these decorative stands because they were cheap, easy, and customized! I went to my local thrift store and dug around until I found the exact plates/chargers and bases that I wanted. I then went to Wal-mart and got spray paint colors of my choice and Gorilla glue! Here are my supplies and what I started with, as well as what it looked like when they were glued.
I paired the smooth charger with the smooth base (I think the bases were supposed to be chunky candle sticks), and the textured charger with the textured base. I chose a green color for my living room to go with my color scheme.
I then "Gorilla glued" the chargers and bases together. After they were completely dry, I spray painted!
This is the end results below! (I don't like the red and green together because it reminds of of Christmas, so that stuff is just there until I can get something else.)
|I have these randoms on the green right now until I get different stuff to go on. Probably several different size candles is what I'll end up doing.|
|The top of the bronze. I like that it has a textured rim as opposed to the smooth rim of the green!|
|Finished product of the bronze.|
|The bronze is in our bedroom right now and is currently serving as my jewelry catch-all! :)|
What do you think? Let me know!
As for the next project... that's still undecided. However, I'm thinking about doing something with Hodge Podge!
