Pedestal Plate

Trolling the Blog-universe I found this idea for a pedestal plate.
I found a wooden plate and candlestick at the local thrift shop
Total cost $1.50. You can't beat that can ya!

To start out I sanded the varnish off of both pieces. 











Then with my trusty Gorilla Glue bonded that baby! (Cookbooks are for more than cooking friends!)

Once fully bonded it was spray paint time. I love spray paint, all the beauty and none of the mess!

  (Of course I forgot to take a picture after it was painted. I was so excited to finish... you know!) I roughed it up a bit with a small square of sandpaper.

Voila!
Here it is. Looking good and ready for a party

I am now on the hunt for more parts. Different sizes. Bowls, plates, Glass. Multi-level.
  Ohhh, cupcake stands. ;)
Gotta go! I think the thrift stores are calling me.
