Her are the finished cake stands. I started out with plywood tops and planned on adding trim , well that turned out to be a bigger project that I had planned . We ended up going with MDF and using the router on the edges , the large is 10inch and the small is 8 inch . 6x6 routed base came from a piece of pine.The table legs are from Home Depot but I think Lowes also has them.Painted everything white. I love how they turned out. I got the idea here. From Pinterest
Relief Society Party
My friend made the sugar scrub. Used baby food jars and spray painted the lids.
I used scrap paper on the cake stands to mach our colors for the night. Looking at the pictures I wish I had put the blue ribbon strip on top of the yellow fabric napkin.
IKEA frames . My daughter cut the numbers on the Cricut
When we firs moved into the house we had vertical blinds every where. Slowly they have made there way out , just two left. I love the front window but it gets very bright during the day, no direct sun but a ton of light . The curtains are perfect , a woven fabric from IKEA. It still lets a little light in but add privacy for the evenings .
We bought two wooden dowels the unfinished brackets and some finials , I sprayed everything black.
Thanks to my helper , he gets the credit for the hanging , I handed him the tools and screws. Now I need to fill the old holes in the wall and paint ....that's another day.
My $35 yard sale find. Cant wait to get this done and filled up.
cake stands I started , Iam going to do a bigger base and router the top edge ,which means I need more wood .I used a thin plywood and started putting trim around it but , we aren't good at the mitered corners and it was just not going well. I am making 10 for a Relief Society dinner . If I was just making 2 the trim would have been fine . Just something that I need to get better at .
This is the hardware for my new front window curtains, can wait to get this up . I have so many project going right now I cant get anything done . Relief Society is next week and I have so much to get ready.
