    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!!

    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!!

    So what do you think?!
