Faux Galvanized Cake Stand

Galvanized metal has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years as farmhouse and shabby chic design styles come back into fashion.  Love the look but don’t want to fork over the cash for some of the fancy galvanized pieces you see at places like West Elm or Pottery Barn?  If you shop the fancy catalogs, galvanized serving pieces can cost $30 or more.  Maysem at Ode to Inspiration took matters into her own hands, transforming shiny “silver” objects from the dollar store into a cake stand with a faux galvanized finish.  Displayed alongside actual galvanized pieces, you’d be hard-pressed to spot the impostor!  [how to make a faux galvanized cake stand]
