RECYCLED TIERED STAND - tips & inspiration





It doesn't matter if you stop in to a thrift store once a year or
once a week the abundance of metal kitchen ware is huge. Let me show you how I have recycled some of them.













I pick up interesting pieces when I see them.  
I collect them until I find the best pieces to make a tiered stands. A good tiered stand needs character to start so the more you love the containers the better it will turn out. 

TIPS for collecting:
Coordinating colors really helps too.
The firmer the bottom of the dishes the better,
if not you need to support them with something else like a wood disk.
 Old enamel ware looks great as well as vintage tins.

Some of the ones I have made sit on little legs that are made from old knobs. Some have glass door knobs that decorate the very top for a little extra glamour. They are all built with wood turnings in between the levels so screws can be used to secure the stands together.
GLUE IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH ON ITS OWN. 


*******************************************************************



Each stand is 
constructed differently because of the different parts but
 double ended screws can help make things simpler.
For the double ended screw, you pre-drill both pieces of wood
hole must be slightly smaller than the threads), holding the
 mid-section of the screw with a pair of pliers you screw into 
one end. Once the screw is in one end you simply screw the
 other piece of wood onto it. 


I have used an old wood trivet/hot plate as the very 
bottom of my drink station stand. 

GOOD LUCK building your own
RECYCLED TIERED STAND!!!
