How to make a galvanized cake stand. Y’all just don’t know how excited I am to say that. Yes making a cake stand from thrifty finds is nothing new but I have been wanting a galvanized one forever! Today our Thrift Store Decor team is back with awesome decor ideas for your home.
I’ve collected each part of this project over time. I was so excited to find several old pie tins, I knew exactly what I’d do with them.
- Cheese Dome (How many of these do you see every time you go to Goodwill!!)
- Metal Pie Pan
- Metal Bucket (This el-cheapo is from Ikea)
- E6000 Glue – this stuff is strong!
Tip: When you have a shiny metal bucket, soak it overnight in vinegar to age it. I’ve also heard you can use toilet bowl cleaner or oven cleaner to age metal – I have not tried these. Do not use any of these methods together, choose one!
Easy peasy – apply the E6000 glue to the bottom of the bucket and attach it to the pie pan. Let it dry.
That’s it, add your cake and dome – you’re done. Enjoy. Instant farmhouse serving piece!

What a fun project Debbie! Yay for galvanized cake stands! Vinegar? Hmmmm haven’t tried that trick.
Great tip about the easy dessert too!
Love how you put this together and that cake looks delish!
Thanks so much!
All those great ideas in one post. First of all I love the cake stand. I would have turned the pie pan up and that would have been all wrong! Love the quick cake idea. You are at the top of my list as diyer’s Debbie.
