New Use for a Cake Stand!

I recently read about this cool idea from Jamielyn at I {heart} Nap Time for using a cake stand to keep your soap, sponges, and whatever else off of your counter top. We all know that it can be a damp mess up there, so any tips on making the area more aesthetically pleasing are always exciting!

Basically, you set the cake stand there and use a pretty rag for soaking up the moisture. It looks so chic and modern, yet a bit country-kitchen at the same time!

I found this cute alternative on Natalie's blog, Natalme, that shows how to make your own if you don't already have an extra cake stand laying around (which I don't).  Natalie used an old candlestick holder she had, spray painted it, and then epoxied it to a regular plate, which is a fantastic idea.

Beautiful, right? However, I don't have a candlestick holder like that, so I found another smart idea on Meredith's blog, Haute to Sew, for taking two regular Dollar Store items (that you can pick up today, for cheap I might add) and using the same method, come up with a very similar result!

Give this a shot and tell me how it goes!
