I saw a picture of a cake stand turned sink stand on Pinterest (my not-so-secret addiction) and thought, “That might help make our sink look less cluttered!” So, I went out to Target today to get a simple, white dinner plate and a candlestick. I thought I may have to spraypaint the candlestick, but I found a great black one that went well with the kitchen so no painting (Score!). I got them for about $10, but you could certainly buy the materials for less by going to Goodwill, Walmart, or a thrift store. Make sure you get a candlestick with a good, wide diameter for the base and that holds a pillar candle (this will help keep the sink stand from tipping over!)
Here’s the materials line up:
Take the gorilla glue and spread it around the part of the candlestick that will touch the plate. You don’t need a lot at all because Gorilla Glue expands like c-r-azy.
Finally, turn it all right side up (the candlestick may slide a bit, so be sure to get it back in the center of the plate) and place some heavy books on top of the plate until it dries (I had some more errands to run with Dr O and Little O and by errands, I mean going to Orange Leaf, so mine sat for a couple of hours).
Here it is in action:
It was so simple and relatively inexpensive. I love it 🙂
