So… one day someone posted on Facebook about wanting to buy a large wooden cake stand.
I contacted her as I had a couple I’d made using recycled bits and pieces. Wooden platters, lamp bases, whatever. This is one of them.
Yeah, I decided to try copper coloured paint instead of my usual pastel chalk paint. Not sure if I like it…
Anyway, back to the lady and the Facebook post.
Turned out she wanted an extra large cake stand. 36cm across. I didn’t have anything that big so I cut the circle out of some MDF. I cut it at 38cm. A bit of breathing room for the cake….
But it was boring. Just plain MDF… BO-RING. meh.
I could do better.
What do you think? Can you tell what I did? I used small wooden beads I ordered on ebay. I got those little suckers and glued them to the bottom of the circle. I love them. They add a bit of fancy to the cake stand.
Its going to be used for a black & white themed 21st birthday party, so the lady wanted it gloss black. I gave it 2 coats of black after giving it a coat of sealer. Done. Just like a bought one.
Very darn cute. Those little beads just make me smile.
A fun project and a happy customer. What more could I want?
