DIY RECYCLED PEDESTAL TRAY
made from an old chipped cake dome and
an old oil pan
This cake stand with dome had seen its glory days- and now lay abandoned in my basement with a huge chip in it & this metal oil pan had also seen better days- my mom had actually already painted this for me to turn into a serving tray - Then she came up with this fab idea- turn it in to an awesome pedestal tray!
I used my go to adhesive -E 6000- I used liberally along the edge on the glass cake stand and let it dry (upside down) overnight- be careful to follow the E6000 directions or it may not hold properly!
and voila the finished pedestal!
I love the glass/metal combination- and it fits in with the cottage
style that I have going on my front porch
This year I decided to go with an all white theme for fall on my front porch, and this tray was a perfect accent!
I just used a single strand of white berries and wrapped them in a circle
- dropped in the mini pumpkin gourds I picked up at my local grocery store- 2 for a dollar!
such a lovely fall scene I am trying to conjure up some peace this
and what to do with the leftover cake dome? it was still in good shape with no chips or cracks- so I paired it with this cute vintage metal tray that I already had(you can see my selection of vintage metal trays for sale at my etsy shop www.MimisSuitcase.etsy.com)
I think I just might have to bake something to go under it today!
