Tiered Plate Stand

The February/March issue of Readymade Magazine featured a tiered plate stand, made with sundae cups, candle sticks, and epoxy glue.
I had to give it a try.

I found these amazing Walter Kimble hen plates at a thrift store, and decided to use the similar designs together even though the options are open for mixing designs and sizes.

There are some examples of tiered plates on Etsy that use a large plate on the bottom and transition up to a tea cup on the top.
Perfect for chips and dip, name it.

Here are just some of the glass items I picked up at the thrift store for possible pillars.

Here's the final result!

I used a candlestick as a pedestal too!(versus having the bottom plate just sit on the counter. A candlestick and one plate makes a cute cake stand)

I am much more apt to use a tiered stand versus a singular plate, and it really dresses the plate up too.
What a great way to showcase sentimental china patterns, or varying designs of a favorite company.

I have a stone egg I may place in an egg cup on the top as a finial, but I need to find the perfect egg cup first.

My first blog post via phone--not too shabby.
