Spring is in the air! I can feel it. Last weekend we had a 60° day! We were outside all day long working on projects and playing with the kids. Then, this week we got a couple of inches of snow. UGH. This DIY 3 Tier Stand is part of a Hometalk collaboration with so many of my favorite creative bloggers. This will be our third collaboration. We started with a fall project and now, it is time for a spring project.
I had a few ideas for this project and then changed my mind when I was inspired by some left over pieces we had in the garage. Sometimes I can get inspired by the different things we have stored in the garage and other times nothing comes to mind. When I saw these pieces, I knew they would come together to make a perfect 3 Tier Stand.
To start the process, I had to talk to my contractor. 🙂 I had to make sure my idea would work and Matt was on board all the way. He told me it was a pretty simple, straight-forward project.
First, I had to come up with the measurements for the different boxes on this stand. I wanted three tiers with a bigger one on the bottom and a smaller one on top.
Thin plywood was the base of each box. The sides were made from an old board we had in the garage.
To see how we make our wood boxes, head to my post HERE.
Here are the three boxes ready to be put together on the stand.
To make the boxes work on the stand, we measured and marked the center on the bottom of each box.

Then, we cut the wood dowel to fit between each of the boxes. We used dowel screws to attach the spindle to the boxes.
I painted all of the boxes in “Heirloom” from Fusion Paint. It is the perfect spring color! I roughed up the paint with sandpaper when it dried.
This 3 Tier Stand is so much fun to decorate! I pulled out a few of our Easter decorations and had fun playing around with it all. I also used this stand when I hosted the tea party I shared last week.
This DIY Three Tiered Stand will be used for many different things.
For now, I am enjoying it in our kitchen and dining room full of Easter and spring goodness.
We will get a lot of use out of this tiered stand. I can see it decorated for every season and holiday. How would you use it?

Lindsey I’ve been seeing a lot of these tiered stands, but yours stands out because it is made of square pieces instead of round like everyone else’s. I love the color you painted the boxes and the distressing which adds such a nice touch!
Thank you so much Mary!
