I've had this collection of blue and white plates stashed in my cabinet for so long and I finally decided to do something with them.
I found some cakestand hardware online and ordered a few sets. It arrived in the mail with these complicated instructions on how to drill centered holes.
I read everything, carefully followed the instructions, and tried to mark the plates.
He measured across the plate, taped the center, and started drilling away.
I was still reading the instructions and marking plates and he had already drilled a few. Sometimes instructions make things more complicated.
The plates are quite old, some more than the others-- but they are not precious-old.
And now the exciting part--assembling. I don't know if I threaded them correctly.
Now that I have all these tiered plates, I try to use them whenever I can.
And here they are in action...
So perfect for serving little snacks, cupcakes, and uh..pizza.
Sometimes I amaze myself with my (or ok, my carpenter's) crafty skills. Martha would be proud.
