Upon discovering some very pretty vintage dishes, I decided their best use would be a cake stand. The bottom dish has beautiful scalloped edges with green and pink flowers and a stamp on the bottom that says made in Austria. It seems really old, although I do not know much about this subject ( I just know it is pretty). The top dish has delicate, pink flowers and a little blue bird in the center. I used two different, vintage candleholders for the base and the pedestal.
It was very easy to do! I just found and marked the center point of the plates and glued the candlesticks to the plates with some E-6000.
Isn't she pretty?
Of course, I prefer to use it as a fruit stand. Here it is loaded with my garden tomatoes and some fake pears.
What other use could you find for this little beauty? I was thinking it could work in a bathroom holding soaps and toiletries or even jewelry.
