Cake Stand Kitchen Organizer

kay. So I have been a tad bit obsessed with making these cupcake stands forever now ever since I realized you can glue a candlestick to the bottom of a metal tray & make a sassy little stand. I made one a while back {here} for our bathroom & they are so handy. I wanted to make one for our kitchen to hold hand soap, dish soap, & a bowl full of wash cloths to reduce the ┬áamount of paper towels we use. This is probably the easiest, quickest DIY you can do, but it adds some cute and quirky decor to your kitchen & makes life a little easier & cleaner. & of course you do not need to use it for holding kitchen supplies, you can use it as an actual cake holder if that’s what you are in to ­čśë

To create the stand, I first spray painted the dollar store candle holder & metal tray with this Krylon Oil Rubbed bronze. I’m a little obsessed with this finish lately, you can see the fan I just used this spray paint on {here}. After the paint dried I used this scotch super glue that I found in the dollar section at Target & put it around the rim of the candle stick. I placed the center of the try on top of the candlestick & placed the spray paint on top of the try for weight & allowed the glue to try. Voila there is your cake stand. The Meyers clean day dish soap & hand soap are from Target as well as the bowl. The clearance section got me again!! Gosh I love Target. It’s my happy place. Ps. This radish scented soap is yummy, I would have guessed otherwise.



Do you guys have a stand like this in your kitchen? What do you use yours for? I have really been enjoying mine & also I have wanted to start hand washing the dishes more & using my dishwasher less. I like the simplicity of it all. What do you guys think? Chat with me in the comments below, on Instagram, or on Facebook, I would love to connect with you. Talk to you soon!


  1. Hi there,

    I saw your post via Pinterest. This is so cute and functional- I love it. I bought the same tray and candle stick and spray painted them last weekend. They look great! I am going to attach them tomorrow with super glue. Anyway, I love the bowl you got. I went to Target today but they don’t have anything like that. I was thinking of getting a custom made one from Etsy so I could get blue (my kitchen accent color) put in. Do you think you could give me the measurements of that little bowl so I could get something that same size. Everything I find is either too small, doesn’t ‘match at all or is too large so I think I have to go the route of custom made. Thanks!

  2. Is the tray from dollar tree as well ?
