It’s time for our monthly Thrift Store Décor party! This is where we take items and put our own spin on them. Today’s metal tiered stand project was a bit challenging, and I even took a little hiatus from working on it. Do you do that? Walk away from projects when they aren’t going your way?
I bought this tiered (tired) table in August of 2015. I still regret not getting those beds for $5.
On that same day at another yard sale I bought these two metal cake pans.
Back in the Spring of 2015, I drilled holes in the cake pans and stacked them on the original tiered table stand.
Then this project sat in the carport all summer long. I felt it needed something and I was stumped. Because the cake pans were thinner than the wooden boards, it was a little wonky. Finally in the Fall I got it out and revisited it. I found a way to tighten the rod at the base of the table, and I used some Gorilla Glue to secure the pans to the wood so that it was more secure.
I took it to Glendale 2016 in all of it’s chippy goodness, and it was one of the very first items to sell. A young man bought it to give as a Christmas gift.
There ya go! How turn a tired, old tiered table into a more useful tiered stand. What would you use this for?

Hi, there! I’m Gail, the author and mastermind behind My Repurposed Life. I’m obsessed with finding potential in unexpected places and believe that with a little hard work and imagination, any old thing can be made useful again—myself included! I hope you’ll enjoy the journey and pick up a few tools along the way… literally!
i really like that. guess i will have to show up early for Glendale Days and just come straight to your booth! 🙂
Love this. Would probably use it to display my napkins, salt and pepper shakers, etc. in it in the kitchen.
Well that's just cute as can be. I can see why it sold fast. Sometimes things are a lot more work than you think they will be. Don't you just love that, lol.
i like yours because it has a little heft to it and i am sure will hold a lot and i love the look xx

It turned out beautifully! I've made one before with candlesticks, but never thought about small table parts! Smart!

Ahhh, I just bought 2 heart shaped cake pans and planned on doing something like this with the idea of holding cupcakes or napkins, etc. Although, your idea on how to connect them is way better than what I was thinking 😉
