I have to share this...

Pin It Now!

You've all seen my cherished tiered stand that my mom bought in a cute little shop at Disneyland when I was little. I just have to share with you how Tina at Enchanted Rose Studio used that as inspiration to turn this (those are crystals under the plastic)...




into this...

Notice how she not only painted it white but she took it apart and turned each tier upside down! On her blog-Enchanted Rose Studio, she explains how she did it.

Gorgeous! I have seen the original ones in gold & silver at TJ Maxx, but thought they were a little gaudy! What she did with them is beautiful!

Cindy, I had the light bulb but you are the sunshine! Your warmth brightens our days. You take us on road trips, share your ups and downs, you lift us up, and you show us the posibilities.

Thank you for shining your sunbeam on me.

hugs,
Tina

Christine said...

wow that is gorgeous!!

My Cottage Charm said...

Hey, that looks familiar! :) You rememeber my blog where my husband went out and surprised me with the three-tiered, that's the same one...except mine is silver. I liked the silver so I didn't paint mine. I had every intention of painting it white, until I got home and sat it down in my kitchen with the silver tin backsplash. It looked so good with it, I just couldn't paint it! :) I didn't think I'd like the silver at all, but in my kitchen it looked great...especially with all my sterling silver pieces. I like what she did with her too!

GypsyNurse said...

What an amazing job!! All the photos are simply gorgeous... but the shells....ummmm...my fav!
Have a great weekend!

I have been blessed to have an armoire, dresser and french cane chair to paint. Please tell me what shade BEHR white paint did you use? Thanks and continue inspiring.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Anonymous, I used Behr paint in Polar Bear. I then used some diluted brown paint to wash over it and wipe off to give an antiqued look.

There's not much sweeter, is there?

Sarah said...

How clever! This is lovely. Thanks for sharing this idea.

Val said...

what a coincidence! i was just admiring one rather similar item in the store with a friend i had lunch with yesterday. lovely ideas!

A New England Life said...

Wonderful! As others mentioned I too have seen these in the stores, liked them, but didn't buy one. Now I'll look at it in a whole new light!

Great job Tina!

A New England Life said...

Oh, and I think the crystals would still have looked pretty had they been added back on, but that's just me. It still looks wonderful without.

Fleur de Bee said...

Such a fun idea!! I have a few of those for catering...great idea when I'm done with them!! xo Molly

Andrea at My Feathered Nest said...

Wow! That looks so much better. What a difference white paint can make. When I'm shopping now, I'm always thinking....what would that look like if I painted it white or pink???

Hi Cindy, your blog has been a big inspiration for me. I, like everyone else loves your 3 tiere server. I have been looking for something similar for quite awhile now. Yesterday I found one that I love. I have posted pics of it on my blog and linked back to your blog. Take a look and tell me what you think when you have a chance. Cheers Rhianna
