If there is one thing every party needs it is cake stands. Or cupcake stands, cookie stands, whoopie pie stands. Any type of stand will do. And today I have a 5 minute tutorial for you to whip up some new ones.
- Candlestick //
- Spray paint //
- Gorilla glue //
- 6 inch hexagon tile
Take your candlestick, I got mine from Target for like $3 and spray paint it any color you want. I chose copper because I love the look of copper and marble tonight (see my table yesterday).
Marble and copper sure make a pretty duo, don’t you think? I have been having such a fun time coming up with new ways to incorporate the two into my home and my latest little nightstand has proven very useful. Especially when I have fresh flowers to place on top – because what is more refreshing than waking up to flowers?
Our latest Drifter + the Gypsy contribution featured copper pipe (surprise, surprise)! I have been eyeing the beautiful industrial pipe shelves that have been floating around. So I finally got around to building them myself, although instead of using all iron pipe I used mostly copper which is a lot lighter. The weight is an important factor for me since there are no studs in my walls. Plus, it fits in well with my other copper projects.
Instead of getting wood cut to size, I went the easy route and bought plain white shelves from Home Depot. However, you can easily buy wood and stain or paint it to match whatever style you’re going for.
- 2-3 shelves (I used these ones) //
- 1/2” copper pipe //
- Pipe cutter //
- Flanges (2 per shelf) //
- Copper male adapter (2 per shelf) //
- Screws (8 per shelf) //
- Drill //
- Copper tube cap (2 per shelf)
