Saturday kicked off with a morning cup 'o joe with my beautiful friend Autumn. Yeah, the good friend who moved about 30 minutes from me but that I manage to only see 2-3 times a year. Hey! We're busy people alright. Quality over quantity is what I always say. :) Anyways, after our morning dose of caffeine it was off to hit some thrift shops. THIS is what I brought home...
Take your pile of thrift shop goodies and get yourself some heavy books, epoxy, and something to measure the center of the plate (I was very technical and precise and used string. :).) Then some how figure out the middle of the plate. Once you do, outline the stand that you will be gluing in pencil onto the plate (you can barely BARELY see my outline). This will make it easier as epoxy is relatively fast drying. Once you have your circle on your plate apply the epoxy to what will be your "stand" and stick that sucker on to the underside of the plate.
Then bust out those old musty books you never read anymore because E-readers have taken over the world, set them on top of the stand...let sit overnight.
And those are my cake stands...totaling in at about $2/cake stand. Oh I love me a good thrift shop.
