From Trash to Tiers

First of all let me start this post with a "ugh! I can't find where I saw this idea!"

I'm assuming pinterest, but of course cannot find! 

Anyways, I wanted to clear up some more kitchen counter clutter and after I finished my drawer hideaway, I moved onto the counter next to the sink. Where we keep our coffee, sugar and coffeemaker. Now I had them in a basket, but everything didn't fit well. 

And then remembered I saw a cute recycled tiered tin "thing" that I could make! 
So I gathered my supplies. All of which I had on hand! Score!

I used two different sized candy tins, and a wooden paper towel holder.

I used this paper towel holder, because it unscrewed at the bottom.
I just drilled a hole in the center of the larger tin and then put the paper towel holder back together.

To make the top tier, I cut the rod down to the height I wanted it and used a screw to go through the tin into the dowel.

Spray painted white.


So much better, and holds so much more!

  3. Good job! What a fun and inexpensive way to up-cycle!

  4. So cute! Do the tins rotate/spin or are they fixed in place?

    1. Rachel- It's stationary, but by putting it on a lazy susan would make it spin!

  5. I'm totally comment bombing you today ;) I love this!! It's just the right amount of "industrial/vintage" appeal, but still modern. I could totally do this for my bathroom or kitchen. Thanks for sharing!
