Display Ideas Needed For Cottageware Collection
I've recently had a complete kitchen remodel and, in the process, lost the display space for my vintage Cottageware collection. I have a long space above the upper cabs in my laundry room that would be perfect for them . . . but I need stands for some of them, to vary the heights and to showcase them. Since most of these are from the Forties & Fifties, I got to thinking that vintage cake stands would be perfect . . . then I got to pricing them! On Ebay, they can run up to $60 and then there's the shipping costs.
Any ideas on how to come up with something that will resemble vintage cake stands? I can easily paint them if they're a metal. I'd love for them to have that cool scalloped edge that was popular back them. They need to be sturdy, and I'd like to vary the heights but only the bases and edges will be visible from below.
BTW, here's a pic of a few of my Cottageware pieces, in case you're not familiar with them:
