It must be Spring, I cannot explain it, but I want more color in my home. And when I have replaced my kitchen table with a bigger one, which I really adora since I have more space for my crafts (!!!!), it was just the perfect time to add even more color in my kitchen! A really cute Cake Stand in Shabby chic style!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
I really wanted to create something cute for my kitchen table to use it for my handmade crafts or even better to use it also as a serving utensil. I knew exactly what I wanted it, so two things to buy from IKEA... the Wooden Rotating Disk and a Wooden Candle Holder I have seen online, but I also wanted to check them on the store. They were exactly what I needed!
The diy is really easy, but it will take a couple of days, because actually we will paint it! So glue for wood and just attach the candle holder on the serving disk, creating in that way a Cake Stand! The colors were different, but this was not a problem, since I have decided to paint then in mint green. For that I have used a Chalk Paint. Just use a paint brush and paint the stand. Let it dry and reapeat if you wish to have more bold color. I have done mine, three times and the mint green was the one that I wanted!
Now the next step... a beautiful detail! No I have no idea how to draw, so again this time I have used a stencil!
What else I used:
- Acrylic Color
- Paint Brush
- Sand Fixative Spray
Put the stencil in the place you wish on the disk and paint. Remove it carefully and let it dry!
Let the stand dry and then use the fixative spray to protect your color from water and anything else. And we are done!
