A Pedestal Dish Created from Junk

I just love creating something from nothing...

Pieces that may have ended up in the trash under normal circumstances I saved in my junk pile so someday they could be put to good use.

For this project I started with a finial from a curtain rod, an enamelware plate, and the top from a broken post lamp.

I put these pieces together using E6000 glue and the screw attached to the bottom of the finial. 

I drilled a hole in the center of the enamelware plate and put the finial screw through the plate and into the top of the post light piece. 

I used a bolt underneath to secure the piece together.

I painted the finial and the base with Fusion Mineral Paint in Inglenook and the pedestal dish was complete.

The DIY pedestal dish makes a great server for appetizers, desserts, or fruit.
