Tiered Inspiration

I was so inspired by this blog that I decided to create one for myself.  I wanted to add some height to my crop table and this was a fashionable way to do so.

I took only 1.5 hours on a Saturday and hit up a couple of thrift stores in my area.  Did you know you could haggle with them over the prices?  I didn't know if it would work but it did - and I ended up saving about $8.  This entire stand only cost me $4.

It looks crooked in this picture but it actually came out very straight with no extra effort.  I used 3 plates and 3 candle sticks to make this.  The pieces are glued together with E-6000.

The bottom candle stick started out like this - yucky and wooden.  So I painted and distressed it to match my Studio.

For the next divider I used a glass candle stick.  I love mixing these different elements - by doing so I ended up with a truly unique piece.

The top item is a very strange candle stick that when turned up-side-down, created a nice "dish" for my topper.

Have you created any tiered plates?  If so, we want to see them.  E-mail photos to

  1. I love it! Great idea, you are so creative. I might have to steal this idea cause I'm always running out of room.
