I've admired pedestals that other bloggers have made for some time, so I though it was about time I had a go. It was quite the learning curve!
From the TK Maxx sale I got 2 purple plates (1 large, 1 medium) and a glass candle stick holder.
This came to £4.
I measured the centre of the largest plate and glued the candle stick holder to it. I then glued the smaller plate to the top. Going well so far!
I quickly realised my mistake...the glue dries white. Oops!
Luckily for me, the candle stick is glass, and I had some sparkly purple glass paint. So I painted the base - which would have been alot easier before it was stuck to the plate!
So, here it is. My first pedestal. Just need some cakes to put on it now.
I'm always on the look out for purple items for our dining room, and I've always meant to make one of these so I'm pleased with how this has turned out. I'm sure you can just picture the expression on my husbands face as I told him it's the first of many!
Thank you very much for reading xx
