chandelier

Isn’t she puurdy?!

I’m SO excited to share my latest trash to treasure DIY cake stand with you guys. I found this old chandy at goodwill on 50% off Saturday for $4.99. I didn’t need another chandelier… but I couldn’t pass it up!  Seriously how could you for five bucks?! Well it sat in my garage for about 6 months… until TWO days before my daughters first birthday party (post coming soon) when an idea sparked.

I remembered seeing this one and as I was trying to come up with an awesome centerpiece I had one of those AH-HA moments. I love those moments…don’t you?! Where all the sudden you’re like “why didn’t I think of this sooner?!” The parties theme was ‘Pretty in Pink’ and I knew the chandelier would go along PERFECT!! I looked through my “stash” and this is what I came up with…

This is how the chandelier looked before…yikes!!

{ DIY Cake Stand }

The first thing I did was snip off all the wires with wire cutters and unscrewed the top. Next I super glued these wooden circles (found at Michael’s) onto the legs. Then I glued a curvy plate to the top (found at crate and barrel for $1.99).

Once the glue was set I took it outside and gave it a good coat of primer. Then I spray painted it with a dusty light pink. Once it was all dry I thought it needed just ONE last touch. :) I found some pearl trim in my stash (found at HL for $1.99) and glued it around the edge of the wooden circles. L-O-V-E! It was ready for the party!!


Can you believe the difference?! This may be my favorite before and after yet! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!! And it looked even better with that gorgeous cake (by Sugar Dreams) on top!!
diy-cake-stand.jpgThis chandelier cake stand added the PERFECT touch to the dessert table (can’t wait to show you the rest)! I’m already thinking of what color to spray paint it next… ;)

So what do you think?!

    The cake stand seems a great idea for old chandelier. The color pink is really suited to blend and complement the pink cake and pink frost cupcake. The pearl looked also nice too. I love how you turned a piece of old item into a new item. Thanks for sharing the before and after photograph.

Your cake stand looks great and I’m so glad that Tami directed me to your blog. You have me as a new follower. Hope you visit my blog, too. Thanks for the fun visit. Helen

      It’s standing on the arms/ legs of the chandelier. The curvy part. :)

    I showed this to my daughter this morning and then we went to Goodwill. Guess what!? 50% off Chandelier for $4.99!! It’s gorgeous as is, but will be painting it to match her wedding colors. Thank you so much for the inspiration and instructions!!

    I’m so doing this for my Kate’s first birthday in two weeks!! I’ve found one that looks almost identical to yours but I need help! How did you cut off the the ball this at the bottom so that it will stand up strait??

    • Jamielyn replied on December 26th, 2012 at 12:16 pm

      Hi Jessica! My ball un-screwed? If not I would try borrowing someone’s saw that cuts through metal. Good luck! xo

    Hi! I have my own chandelier that I’m working on so I was searching the internet for some answers… I love your take!! One question- how did you get it to sit level? Did you take the bottom “bulb” off all together? Thanks!! :)

    Reply

    • Jamielyn replied on July 23rd, 2014 at 10:19 pm

      Hi Leslie! Yes, I took the bottom piece off so it would stand up flat. :)

    Dear Jamielyn Nye;    Even though the chandelier to dessert server idea 
    does NOT solve world hunger . . . . it is still GENIUS!!  So fun.  Thank you for the great idea!
