A Good Pair

Remember this candle pedestal that I got for 50 cents at a yard sale this past weekend?

I paired it with this cheese platter thing I found at Salvation Army (notice the nasty dust and oil all over the glass. Ew!):

With a few coats of glossy black paint and a little hot glue, I now have a really cool serving platter thing:
Not bad, not bad. Wouldn’t fancy cupcakes or some gooey chocolate chip cookies look amazing displayed inside? Or maybe I’ll use it to hold seasonal decorations of some sort. I don’t know. Either way, I think I’m in love!


  1. I love your blog. You have such great ideas – and cheap (my favorite)! You could also put a cheese ball in there for a party.

  2. Very clever! I never see the potential in those kinds of items so I am always in awe of those of you who do. I think some chocolate truffles with a bit of pink icing would look great piled up in there!
