Make a Farmhouse Pedestal Stand

Do you know how to make a pedestal stand?  I love these things to pieces and have a few new ones that my husband and I finished this week!

Not only do they look super farmhousey (yeah, I made that word up),  but they earn their keep in the kitchen.  Since I have a serious shortage of counter space in my kitchen, everything has to be functional, and can’t just sit and look pretty.

The first one we finished was made using a vintage enamelware pie pie pan, and a section from an antique bed post.

The other one has a vintage enamelware bowl, and another section from the same bed post.

I like to use them to hold fruit, but you could also put napkins or salt and pepper shakers on  ones with a flat pie plate, and use them as a table centerpiece.

They are very similar to making tiered stands (tutorial here), but you only need one piece instead of two.

I’ve listed both of these pedestal stands in my online shop.

The one with the pie pan is available HERE.

I’m a monthly contributor over at My Repurposed Life, and this month I’m sharing how to make a pedestal stand using a pie pan.  You’ll find the tutorial here.

I hope you’ll pop over and say hello, and let me know if you make a pedestal stand for yourself!

  1. I’ve been looking for a pedestal stand, I should make one myself! Yours are very pretty indeed.

  2. Terrific idea, I need to make a few.

  3. Check your link to your tutorial at Repurposed Life, Angie. I can’t make it go!

  4. I have a fetish for cake stands, can’t seem to have enough of them. Yours are beautiful Angie, love how you used enamelware for yours. I’m sure they’ll sell quickly, if they haven’t already sold! Pinning to share.

  5. Love them both Angie, but since I collect the blue splatter ware, that is my favorite. Don’t know if I would have the heart to make a hole in the bowl though.

    • I got several of these blue spatter ware bowls at an antique store a few months ago, Audrey, so I kept one for my collection, but the rest are for tiered and pedestal stands, which I love to make!
