They became pretty popular on Pinterest and Hometalk and have generated a LOT of questions over the last two years. I've been promising inquiring minds that I would add a new post with enhanced directions.
For years - and I mean YEARS - I've wanted to do a summer mantle that was all about the beach. Then two summers ago, as I was reading one of my favorite blogs, I saw these beautiful beach pictures. I loved one of these beachy picture so much that I flashed Karah an email and said "I'm going to steal" "can I use your picture?" and she wrote back and said "sure!" I was going to use her picture on my mantle. Now you guys know that sometimes I let ideas brew in my head for a loooooooonnnnng time.
Sometimes to the point of fermentation. Fortunately, fermented ideas don't smell as bad as fermented food.
I'm a bright kitchen light kind of girl. I like to see what I am cooking. So it made me sad that the ceiling light in my kitchen only worked halfway. That means that only one of the two lightbulb sockets would light up a lightbulb. That left me with a 60 watt kitchen. And sucked.
It happened (I think) because we had an upstairs plumbing leak that went straight to the fixture. It needed to be replaced.
Sometime this spring I found some really cool vintage bake ware at an estate sale. I brought it home and put it on the counter - because I liked looking at it. I used it occasionally to hold some stuff, but mostly it was in the way. I decided that I needed to make them more functional. So they wouldn't just be pretty but productive. And I've seen all the way amazing two and three tiered stands made by the oh-so-very-talented Angie at Knick of Time. So I gathered up some supplies and got to work on my vintage bakeware three tiered stand.
