DIY Rolling Pedestal Stand

In Part 2 of my farmhouse kitchen reveal I showed you a rolling pedestal stand that I made to display coffee cups on. It is part of my coffee station I keep on the kitchen counter and it also makes a great serving tray. The antique casters give it an industrial feel that I love.

Hot cider season is coming!! With the changing seasons, I changed out the springy green pillow in my breakfast nook for this vintage crochet pillow in fall hues.

Back to the rolling pedestal stand. Today I want to share with you how I put it all together.
Here’s what you’ll need:

2 9″ plywood circles (found at craft and hobby stores)
Caning strips
White paint
Metal candlestick or other base with “legs”
3 small casters
E-6000 adhesive
Tacky Glue

Starting with a metal candle stand, I removed the center plate from it and
flipped it over on its other end.

I used 2 9 inch plywood circles that I painted white. I doubled them up
to give more thickness and stability.
Next I used some caning that I’ve been keeping in my craft closet for the right project.

I cut and glued 12 vertical 1 3/4 inch strips
and a horizontal strip around the circumference of the plywood circles using Tacky Glue.

I used my Drimmel to cut the posts off 3 casters.

Then I used E-6000 to glue the casters to the “legs” of the candlestick,
again securing with clamps until the glue was dry.


Once the glue on the casters was dry I flipped the base over and glued the tray on top with E-6000.
