Buy Hand Challenge: A Soap Stand for Mom


I saw a soap stand on Ikea Hacker- made from a heavy candle stick and a pie plate- Not wanting to ruin the Buy Hand Challenge buy buying new or wasting what could be a perfectly good Pie Tin (In hopes of pie for later) I started scavenging the thrift store up the street- Here is what I came up with: I found a great small round metal platter and a brass candle stick. I simply super glued the candle stick to the metal platter and spray painted in my mom's bathroom colors! (Or what I perceive them to be). Next step is to find some handmade soaps for the tray. This could be a perfect gift for aunt or a friend or someone who likes baths with fancy soaps I guess.

What an ingenious idea! I also saw the candle stick with a beautiful small dish of china with hand painted roses. It looked fabulous. Thanks for sharing.
