Thrift Store Dessert Stand

Remember the plate and vase from my "Why I Love the Thrift Store" post?
Those are what make my Thrift Store Dessert Stand!

I've seen versions of these dessert stands all over blogland and I decided that I NEEDED one.  So off to the thrift store I went.  It actually took me a couple of times at the thrift store before I found what I wanted, but find it I did!

I was originally looking for a candlestick for the bottom, but when I saw this vase, I loved the texture on it and knew that I wanted to use it for the base of my dessert stand.

So I started with my glass plate and my vase:

I added a little spray paint to the outside of the vase and the underside of the plate.  I didn't spray paint the whole plate because I wanted to be able to see the details on the top.

After the paint dried, I glued the two together using some E6000.
Love that stuff.

I let it sit overnight to make sure the glue was set before I used it.
There was a little glue/paint reaction/incident.  Since I didn't paint the top of my plate, you can see what happened:

I'm not too worried about it because I figure food will be on top of it when I use it, covering the little reaction :)

Did any of you notice that this is what I used in my "Better Than Rice Krispy Treats" post?  I kinda snuck it in there.  Hee hee hee!

There you have it!  Your dessert stand is ready to display some yummiful desserts!  {Yeah, I just made that word up.  I do that a lot :) }

You can see the details on the plate in the pic below.  I would have lost those details if I would have painted the top.

I'm really happy with how my Thrift Store Dessert Stand turned out!

Plus it cost me about $1.75 to make.
Love. It.

Ooooh, I love it! I'm going to have to head to the thrift store! We have a birthday coming up and I've been trying to find a cute way to display cupcakes. This is a great idea! *INTERNET HIGH FIVE!*

That's great. It looks like milk glass.

It's beautiful and does look like milk glass. Makes me sad I did not swipe my grandma's milk glass cake stand from my mom! Guess I can make my own! Thanks for linking up with DIY under $5!
