Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We are slowly getting back to a normal schedule after Christmas break & then last week’s many, many snow days! 😉 Today I am excited to show you how to make your own cake stand with a little help from DecoArt. This was such an easy & inexpensive project to make, & I think it turned out so pretty! Yay! So keep reading to see how I did it.
round wood platter (You can find these at any craft store.)
wooden furniture foot (I found this one at Lowes on clearance.)
Americana Gloss Enamel paint in white
some heavy books (You’ll see why in a minute!)
I love the Americana Gloss Enamel paint. It can be used on so many surfaces like glass, wood, paper maché, plaster, resin, ceramics, and many other craft surfaces. If you use it on glass or ceramics it can be baked at 325°F for 30 minutes for a dishwasher-safe finish. So awesome! 😉 Since I used it on wood I didn’t do that, obviously! 😉 This paint has a nice glossy sheen to it. I just love the look it gave the wood after I painted it.
It just took 2 coats of paint to get a nice even coverage. Then I let everything dry really well over night. Then I grabbed some wood glue. 🙂
I put some wood glue on the bottom piece. (I put a little too much on! ha!)
Then I put the wooden plate on top along with 2 super heavy books to hold it all in place. I had a little oozing from my abundance of wood glue. ha! 😉 So if you do, too. Just wipe off the excess with some baby wipes. They work perfect for that!
Then let it dry really well. 🙂 Now it’s ready to use. The Americana Gloss Enamel paints are NOT food safe, so you don’t want to place food directly on top of the paint. I used a plastic cake board & a pretty doily to sit my cupcakes on. Isn’t it so pretty? I kind of love it. 🙂
