Fancy Frugal Life: Thrifty Finds to Fruit Tiered Stand

Thrifty Finds to Fruit Tiered Stand

Last month I found these really great plates and chargers at Goodwill and it was hard not to buy the set! So I bought one of each...and of course some candlesticks to make a another goodwill tiered stand! With the help of some E6000 I love how it turned out!! I also spray painted the first and second brass candlestick with Rust-oleum Oregano.

Here it is today along with some fresh tulips I just received from my sweet hubby for Mother's Day! What a great guy! :)

I also made another pedestal cloche in the same Oregano color because I love it!

The white pedestal cloche is now in the entry way. I guess I really like lemons right now :) I found two huge bags of them for $5,99 each at Ross. Great score, because they are pricey at Michael's and Hobby Lobby!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Mother's Day including my mom! (She reads my all my posts and is my biggest fan!) And reads your sweet comments and discusses with me! Ha :)

I am having a hard time believing that tiered tray was not found in some far off boutique! Good Will? Really? I would have never thought to group them togeather, but the result speaks for itself! You definately have a top notch one of a kind there! I'm soooo jealous...

I have seen these stands a-lot recently in blog land ,but you always manage to make it just that must better. You definitely have an eye for decorating.

That tiered stand is stunning! I especially love how you layered the smaller green plate right on top -- great job!

Seriously you got all that stuff at Goodwill!?! That stand looks amazing...like a really expensive piece from a fancy shop! I think I need to head to Goodwill soon:)

You have a good eye! I have seen stuff like this but would have never put them together. This is gorgeous!
Visiting you from Tater Tots and Jello.

WOW so creative of you! I actually like that they are mismatched better than if they were all matchy matchy.

I have been wanting to do this for a while! I think you just gave me the motivation to do it! I love how yours turned out!

Love those white pieces, Lina! I'm on a white kick lately myself. I find I can fit them in anywhere in the house. Great tiered stand, too. The dishes work so well together!

Super cute, I love the colors, it is very 'expensive' looking! The pedestals are lovely! I found you at the weekend wrap up party, stop by and visit if you get a chance!

The stand is gorgeous!! I want to make one. It's time for a trip to the thrift store.

Thats a really pretty stand, love the top plate, it's gorgeous. Tulips are so pretty too, and I love the lemons in those big hurricanes.

My question is, where do you store all your stands. That is the only thing holding me back from making these. I don't have any place to store them, :(

I'd love if you linked this up. Stop by anytime to say hello!!!

Have a wonderful day girl!!
Also if you get a chance, hope you can come over to see how I make the EASIEST chicken curry ever, using rotisserie chicken, and enter to win your own MAGIC Chicken Curry Mix.

Hugs, Bella :)

That looks just fantastic! I totally want to try my hand at that sometime because I have a ton of those brass candlesticks stored away. Thanks for sharing your transformation with us at Inspiration Friday this week! :-)
