Here is Kristen's beautiful tiered organizer:

How cute! Can you tell what it's made out of? TIN PIE PANS!!
I figured there had to be a million tin pie pans at my local antique store so I headed down right away. As it turns out, there are only about 12 tin pie pans there, most of which were priced between $5-$10. Seriously??? For a used, somewhat rusty old pie pan. Paleaze people! I did manage to find a few, for just $2.25 total, but I had to settle on the sizes- they weren't exactly what I was looking for but they will do.
Here's my version:
I wish I had put something in the photo to show scale. It's a little large and in charge!
While I loved how Kristen left her tin pans untouched, mine weren't in the best condition. Once again, I opted to spray paint without first priming. Probably not the best decision in this regard. I felt like I was spray painting for days. Of course, it didn't help that central PA unleashed about a zillion tons of water on the area last week. Rain doesn't make for the best spray painting weather, or else this post would have been up over a week ago.
I used Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Satin Finish in Pistachio for the trays. I bought the two candlesticks in the center at the Dollar Tree in two different heights and painted those my new favorite spray paint in the whole wide world: Krylon Brushed Metallic Satin Finish in Sesame Shimmer. I love this color! Admittedly, my judgment might be swayed a bit by the fact that I found two bottles of it at Walmart on clearance for $1 each but still, it's a very pretty brownish/goldish metallic color. I glued them onto the pans with E6000, my go-to glue for most crafting projects.
So I made this pretty thing and then my husband came in and said "Where are you going to put that?" Uhhhhh.... I had no idea. I just HAD to make one but I had no plans whatsoever for it. This might be my first clue that I have a spray painting problem but I'm not ready to admit it yet.
It ended up finding a home, at least for the time being, in our living room, as you'll see in my upcoming living room mini-makeover post.
Anyone else crafting with reckless abandon or is it just me??
